Atomic Learning

Need to learn how to use some software? Check out Atomic Learning.

Atomic Learning is an extensive collection of online software training videos ranging from tutorials on how to use MS Access to how to use WordPress. The range of software covered is truly impressive. There are tutorials for all Adobe, MS, and Google products, and it covers software for both PC and Mac. It also includes tutorials on SPSS and Blackboard.

The log-in process is slightly different than accessing the rest of our databases, but still simple. Instead of logging into Esearch first, and then following the link, follow the link and then log in using your Spartan Domain user ID and password (just as you would if logging into Esearch).

The videos are divided into the categories of tutorials, projects, and workshops, depending on how much you want to learn. I’m currently working my way through the “Searching the Web – Advanced” workshop.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Go to http://www.atomiclearning.com/login/ut/. Log in with your Spartans domain/Esearch password. You log in to this database the same way as just described, whether you are on campus or a remote location. This source will be listed on the databases page and Esearch, but it is just a link to http://www.atomiclearning.com/login/ut/.
