Little Falls, MN–August 25, 2006–Winona State University (WSU) has partnered with Atomic Learning, the premier provider of web-based software training. In this unique partnership, the WSU eLearning Center will develop more than 650 tutorials for Atomic Learning’s Higher Education website.

The WSU tutorials will be added to the library of more than 15,000 tutorials currently available on the Atomic Learning Higher Education website,

“Atomic Learning is very excited about this partnership,” said Chuck Amos, CEO of Atomic Learning. “Both WSU and Atomic Learning are committed to enhancing technology education and this partnership is a big step toward that goal for both organizations.”

As part of the partnership, WSU students, faculty and staff will receive full access to the Atomic Learning library.

“At Winona State University, we strive to apply technology in ways that enhance learning by removing some of the obstacles that have traditionally separated students from knowledge and by engaging students in the collaborative and active process of learning,” said Ken Graetz, eLearning Officer at WSU.

“That is why our partnership with Atomic Learning is so important,” Graetz explained. “When it comes to technology, students want to learn exactly what they need to know, when they need to know it, so they can get on with the important business of learning.”

Atomic Leaning provides web-based software training for over 100 applications including the most popular, as well as more specialized software programs. The training is delivered via short (one to three minute), easy-to-understand movies that provide personal, on-demand answers to those “How do I do that?” questions.

These tutorials combined with the workshops and additional resources offered on Atomic Learning website can be used as an integral part of a professional development program, a valuable curriculum supplement, an anytime/anywhere software training resource, or a helpdesk resource.
