“We wanted a solution that would benefit student and instructor,” said Jon Messer, academic technology consultant for the Center for Teaching, Learning & Technology at the University of Richmond. “Atomic Learning is easily accessible, easily added to Blackboard content and faculty love the tutorials.”

Atomic Learning’s Skills Assessments on computer literacy and popular software applications help gauge the technology knowledge of instructors and students.
