Atomic Learning: Online Technology Tutorials for Students & Faculty

As we get further into the semester, students may find themselves in need of training on certain software programs to be able to complete major course activities and assignments such as creating presentations with Prezi or analyzing data using SPSS. When it comes to facilitating that participation and grading assignments, faculty may want a refresher on those programs or how to use certain feedback features in Canvas.

Through the USF system subscription to Atomic Learning, all members of the USF St. Petersburg community have unlimited access to online tutorials for commonly used web and software applications. These online training resources teach you “how do I do that” through a library of thousands of short, easy-to-understand tutorial movies.  Topics include Microsoft programs, Adobe programs, Apple programs, Canvas, mobile apps, and much more.

QM Course Certification for USFSP Faculty

ImageThe Distance Learning and Instructional Media Services department of the Nelson Poynter Library is thrilled to announce that Dr. Barbara Jolley’s second course has met the highest national standards and was awarded the QM seal of the Quality Matters Program.

Dr. Jolley’s Cultural Studies and Popular Arts (LIT3301) is now on the list of award-winning courses from colleges and universities across the nation. This course makes number six to receive QM certification for USF St. Petersburg. Earlier this month Dr. Jolley’s Twentieth Century Literature (LIT 3155) course also received QM certification.

The QM seal of recognition will now be proudly displayed in Dr. Jolley’s online course. Additionally this course will be listed on QM’s site, bringing positive exposure to USFSP’s College of Arts and Science and to the campus.

QM’s review process is designed and implemented by faculty who teach online courses throughout the U.S. to ensures quality and alignment with accreditation standards and best practices in online learning. USFSP first joined QM in 2010 as a way to assist faculty with the development of high quality online courses.

Please contact the Nelson Poynter Library’s Instructional Media Services department for more information about QM and to learn how this program can assist you with your online course development and refinement.
