Helping Students Keep up With Technology in the Online Classroom - Guest Blog Post

We value our customers and appreciate the knowledge they provide and feedback they share, so we decided to ask for their stories to share in our new blog series "Voice of the Educator."

Guest blog post by Heather Austin, Visiting Professor at Eagle Gate College.

The ever-changing world of technology can be incredibly intimidating and overwhelming. With new technologies popping up daily, trying to stay up-to-date with the latest trends can be a major challenge. Before utilizing Atomic Learning in my online courses, many of my students were having difficulties grasping new technologies. Mastering software programs was a daunting task that made the learning process frustrating and dissatisfying. 

Atomic Learning has been an amazing asset to both my students and me. Since integrating this tool in my classroom, my students are more confident than ever using technology.  They are now able to self-assuredly work in multiple software platforms. By the end of the course, my students more clearly understand the course objectives and can effectively apply what they’ve learned in a real world scenario. The Atomic Learning tool has worked hand-in-hand with the course material to facilitate easier learning. I look forward to continuing to share this resource with my students.
