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.

New to VSU: Atomic Learning

Valdosta State University has recently partnered with Atomic Learning, award-winning provider of online technology training and support.  Through this partnership, VSU is able to provide learning opportunities that make it easy for students, faculty and staff to embrace technology and develop critical skills for success at school, at work, and in life.

Research shows three out of four students feel their institution is not using the technology it has effectively. Students’ style of learning is different today especially in regard to technology. Instructors not only need to understand how to use technology in their teaching, they need to understand how to help students use technology to help guide their own learning. (more…)
