No more registering or waiting for a class to happen some time in the future - Atomic Learning narrated video tutorials are ready when you are! Simply type your keywords, optionally add filters for application, topic and category, and click the Search button.

There is a free Atomic Learning app for iPad® available in the App Store. You can access the same training that is available on your desktop computer through the app.

Here's how to log into the app:---

1. Click Log In.
2. Enter your Loyola uvid and password.
3. Click Advanced.
4. Type in luc.
5. Click Go.

Since most users don’t log out of their app, you should only have to do this the very first time you access the Atomic Learning app.

If you have other questions regarding the iPad app, please visit the Atomic Learning App FAQ page.
