Free Online Tutorials & Software Training

Do you wish we offered free courses to teach you the basics-to-advanced features of software such as Microsoft Office (Word, EXCEL, Powerpoint…), Adobe (Acrobat, Dreamweaver, Photoshop…), Google (Docs, Earth, Sites…) and other popular software? Or maybe it is 1am and you find yourself in need of a brush-up on APA or MLA research paper basics? The University of Maine at Farmington has partnered with Atomic Learning, a web-based service which allows UMF students/staff/faculty access to hundreds of step-by-step video tutorials. The University has purchased this service which provides 24/7 on-demand training and to further support the academic needs and interests of our community.

Does this interest you? If so, this service is available from the LaunchPad of our myCampus Portal:

When you first log into the portal, you will notice a section in the left-hand navigation named “LaunchPad” under the UMF Logo. Find the funny-looking blue “A” (has a red dot in the middle) and hover your mouse over the icon – you’ll notice a message “UMF Atomic Learning” pops up. Click on this link and the myCampus Portal will automatically login to Atomic Learning where you will be presented with an easy-to-use interface to videos and tutorials. Don’t know where to start? Try the “Getting started tips” for a better understanding of the Atomic Learning potential.
