Little Falls, MN–September 18, 2006–Cobb County School District in Georgia has chosen Atomic Learning, award winning provider of affordable web-based software tutorials, to provide teachers, staff, and their families training on software applications. The implementation of Atomic Learning in the Cobb County School District will provide over 7,200 staff with full access to a large and diverse library of tutorials and curriculum resources for their professional development program.
Cobb County School District is a leader in education technology. With clear strategic goals of increasing the use of technology in and out of the classroom, there needed to be an affordable and effective way to provide flexible training for teachers, trainers, and other staff members. “We were looking for a service that provided two things to our teachers and support staff: 1. training on instructional and productivity software that are in our schools and district offices; 2. training on both the Macintosh and Windows platforms,” says Beverly Addison, Cobb County’s staff development supervisor. “Atomic Learning provided that service for us.”
Atomic Learning’s innovative approach to software training allows users to access what they need when they need it. Learners can log on to www.atomicLearning.com and easily find a one to three-minute tutorial movie that answers their question and then they can get back to work. Learners can also go through an application’s tutorials one by one to master the entire program. The training is easy-to-access and appropriate for all skill levels.
“We’re happy to have Cobb County School District sign on with Atomic Learning,” says Chuck Amos, Atomic Learning’s CEO. “Cobb County’s schools are dedicated to training their faculty in the latest software applications in order to better serve their students, and we believe our training can help them reach their goals.”
