As an instructor, you have a lot of material to cover and can’t always take precious class time to teach skills that aren’t directly related to your course content, such as proper formats for research papers or how to develop a presentation.
Atomic Learning and other resources available to University of Alaska staff, faculty and students can help. Atomic Learning itself has more than 1,000 how-to videos, usually two to three minutes in length, that can help students learn new strategies or brush up on skills they already have.
One easy method to get this training in the hands of your students is to include a link to Atomic Learning in your course syllabus: http://atomic.alaska.edu.
