As emerging technologies change and shape the way we approach learning in the classroom and productivity in the workplace, it is essential that our knowledge of different technologies and software applications continue to expand and grow.

The Help Desk at Goshen College is committed to providing resources and training to assist our faculty, staff, and students in the classroom and on the job. To accomplish this, we have partnered with Atomic Learning, an award-winning provider of online technology training and support. Through this partnership we are able to make available to faculty, staff and students the practical application of technology in education and in the workplace. Faculty will also have access to training and resources needed to create college and career-ready students with 21st century skills.

Atomic Learning offers 24/7 access to professional development resources and just-in-time training and support for over 205 software applications and technologies, such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, Moodle, Keynote, and the iPad, to name a few. Their training resources are available through a series of one- to three-minute video tutorials. You can watch a video that is geared towards a specific topic or “how to” question, or you can view a series of videos to master an entire software application.
