 Atomic Learning through Blackboard

by: Benhur Hadgu

Atomic learning is a website that offers educational training in technology for students that need to enhance their skills. Students can access programs such as SQL and learn Internet safety.  It gives students important information about privacy, sharing passwords, and safe shopping online. Security issues are major concerns for computers today. Every user will need to purchase Anti-virus or McAfee Virus Scan to protect itself from Viruses and Malware. The program itself is used to access and manipulate data from relational database management systems. The major ones used are access, oracle and cybase.

In addition, atomic learning also does offer certificates of Evidence of Learning. It will enhance your resume. It has certification on different subjects it offers. The certifications are available after 15 minutes of completion. Atomic learning does not stop there, it offers outlook, Co-Writer, learning how to adjust a USB switch and much more. A really helpful part I found on the website is Bookshare which can help you find books you need for your classes or for research. The website has a lot of options where it gives in depth detail about any book you need for research. It also offers tips and additional requirements for each book you are looking for. Also, it has different subjects you can do your research on and find information. Atomic Learning can be a great tool for someone that needs an education on computer basics and an advanced knowledge that can be helpful in the future.

No, that’s the name of the app…Heads up!  Now this particular application cost $2.00 when all is said and done and I believe that it is worth every cent for studying with your friends.

Heads Up! allows you to create a deck of cards and then play a game with your friends to help them remember.  Here’s how it works: Check it Out!

Now imagine playing that as a review game instead of just sitting there with flashcards asking for the definition.  It forces you to think about the vocabulary or places and people in new and creative ways and will have them far more involved in the learning.  Give it a try, trust me it’s fun!
