Information for students in their first year.

What is Hoonuit?

Hoonuit is a web-based, on-demand educational tool designed to teach software and writing competencies through short, targeted video tutorials. Atomic Learning offers an extensive database of tutorials on a wide variety of computer applications (e.g. MS Office, Final Cut, SPSS) for both Mac and PC platforms.

The Hoonuit module can be found as a separate content area button in all Baccalaureate courses in Blackboard. For the purpose of the Baccalaureate courses, students will meet the training requirements for Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, and Word by:

·         logging into Blackboard (https://ut.blackboard.com/webapps/login/),

·         accessing their courses,

·         viewing the tutorials assigned,

·         completing the quizzes,

·         and earning a grade of 85% or better on each assessment (in either the Mac or PC platform).

Assignments and Test will open the Sunday prior to the due date and close at Midnight EST on the night due. Students experiencing technical difficulties (i.e. atomic learning is not working properly) should email their concern to edtech@ut.edu.

Hoonuit is also available from the front page of the Macdonald-Kelce Library. The log-in process is slightly different than accessing the rest of our databases, but still simple. Instead of logging into Esearch first, and then following the link, follow the link and then log in using your Spartan Domain user ID and password (just as you would if logging into Esearch).

You will probably be expected to show some familiarity with Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, and Word. Here are some other Atomic Learning tutorials you might find useful.

Beyond Hoonuit

One of the best skills you can take from a university education is learning how to be a life-long learner. While at The University you have resources like Atomic Learning. Once you leave you may want to check out some of the following learning tools.


Lynda - You have to subscribe to Lynda to use its resources. It is a resource similar to Hoonuit containing thousands of video courses in software, creative and business skills, and used by many businesses.

Khan Academy - Free educational resources with training videos covering a wide array of topics.

MOOCS - Massively Open Online Courses. Take a college course online (though typically not for credit). You can find thousands of MOOCs at OpenCulture.
