What is Atomic Learning?

“Atomic Learning” refers to breaking learning down into its primary parts…the atoms of learning. An atom of learning may be a bit of technique, or a little trick of the trade, or one step among many steps toward creating something much bigger and more complex. The Atomic Learning Library is a library of leaning atoms in the form of video tutorials. By breaking training down into tiny pieces, we make it possible for you to learn on your terms, in your available time .

Have five minutes? AL can answer that little software question that’s been nagging you.

Have an hour or more? You can explore sequences of learning atoms to learn more complex techniques…all at your own pace.
