Full integration of Atomic Learning tutorials is now available within BlazeVIEW D2L.  With the full integration you can incorporate Atomic Learning tutorials directly into your courses and your students can view them inside of BlazeVIEW without having to exit to Atomic Learning. This is another excellent tool that faculty members can utilize for BlazeVIEW face-to-face, hybrid, and online courses. For full instructions please visit the Atomic Learning web page.

NOTE: This integration will NOT be available in GoVIEW as it is a collaborative environment and we have students enrolled from other universities that may not have access to Atomic Learning at their home institutions.

A special thank you to Information Technology and Web Services for their assistance in this project.

If you have additional questions or would like one-on-one assistance, please contact eLearning at 229-245-6490 or email blazeview@valdosta.edu.

Atomic Learning Tips

by Kathy Sundin on April 29, 2013 in Atomic Learning

Atomic Learning

As we mentioned in an earlier blog post, VSU has partnered with Atomic Learning giving faculty, staff and students 24/7 access to thousands of video tutorials on a wide range of topics. Some topics include Desire2Learn, M/S Office 2010, 2011 and 2013 Suite, Adobe Suite, Audacity, AutoCAD, Captivate, Camtasia, DreamWeaver, Facebook, Google, iPad, SmartBoard Notebook, Twitter, Windows, WordPress and YouTube. This is just a small sampling.

I recently attended an Atomic Learning overview session and learned some quick tips I wanted to pass along:

  1. With appropriate admin rights, faculty, staff and students can create custom training tutorials.
  2. With appropriate admin rights, training modules can be assigned or recommended to your students or users.
  3. Video tutorials will run on your smart devices, even iPad using QuickTime.
  4. You can sign up for the Atomic Learning newsletter to get monthly updates.

To access Atomic Learning:

  1. Select:                  My VSU from the main VSU webpage
  2. Select:                  Student or faculty portal
  3. Login:                    Using your BlazeVIEW username and password
  4. Select:                  Applications; if accessing through the student portal
  5. Select:                  Applications/Portals; if accessing through faculty portal
  6. Select:                   Login to Atomic Learning link

This is a great new resource for the Valdosta State University community.
