Little Falls, MN (PRWEB) March 11, 2014
Atomic Learning was recently nominated and deemed a finalist for the 2014 IMS Global Learning Consortium (IMS GLC) Learning Impact Award. Their award nomination was made by Polk State College, and brought on by the development of their LTI tool that is IMS Global certified. This new tool enables customers to seamlessly search the Atomic Learning training library from within their LTI-compliant learning management system, and embed links to videos within their courses. This allows faculty, staff, and students to have direct access to the content they need in the systems they already use every day.
“Atomic Learning offers instructors--via the integration--a unique way to provide additional resources for students that would otherwise fall on additional hours of instruction; therefore, providing a cost saving solution. Our LTI integration in our LMS (Desire2Learn) to Atomic Learning affords the student and instructor more efficiency in viewing the assigned content. The integration is seamless and improves the overall experience at our institution,” said Nathan Neuman, Instructional Technologist, Polk State College.
Atomic Learning understands how important integration capabilities are for universities, and improving their integration tools have been a key initiative because of that. They started with establishing LDAP and remote authentication with single sign-on, then moved on to developing a Blackboard Building Block. Today, having the ability to provide their customers with a variety of integration options along with their newly developed LTI tool has significantly helped insure customer integration success within a multitude of Learning Management Systems.
The Learning Impact Award will be presented to the winner in May of 2014. To learn more about Atomic Learning’s integration options, request more information at http://www.atomiclearning.com/more.
