Atomic Learning: Web-Based Technology Training
"PROVIDING ONLINE LEARNING ONE ATOM AT A TIME"
The Academic Computing department is launching a new initiative which allows Touro faculty and staff members to learn new software technologies anytime, anywhere, using online training provider Atomic Learning® .
More than 4,000 schools in the United States and over 30 countries worldwide currently use Atomic Learning for staff technology training.
How many times, after attending a technology session, have you gone back to your office and asked yourself "How did I do that again?" With Atomic Learning, you can view software training movies at your leisure, and then go back and review what you have learned as many times as you wish.
Atomic Learning breaks up software into small learning units, and clearly states how long it will take for you to review each module. For example:
- Creating a List In Excel - 2 minutes: 29 seconds;
- Filtering and sorting in an Excel List - 1 minutes: 09 seconds;
- How to display and format the chart legend in PowerPoint - 0 minutes :39 seconds;
- Creating a chart in a PowerPoint presentation - 0 minutes: 58 seconds;
- Using AutoFormat in Microsoft Word - 1 minutes :53 seconds;
- Converting text to tables in Microsoft Word - 1 minute: 56 seconds,
- Enforcing referential integrity in table relationships in Microsoft Access - 1 minute: 15 seconds;
- Attaching a file in the text box in Blackboard - 2 minutes: 09 seconds
In short, you can:
- Learn new skills in Excel, Word, Blackboard, Photoshop, PowerPoint, Flash, Microsoft Access, and more...
- Skip the classroom environment and learn at your own pace anytime, anywhere...
- Spend less time learning with short quick tutorials so that you'll have more fun on vacation...
- Know more than your students when you come back in September.
