Atomic Learning & Versifit Technologies Are Now Hoonuit!


Combined Atomic Learning and Versifit Technologies have been operating in the education industry for over two decades, and offer a suite of products that have evolved as the ever-changing education landscape has shifted.

As Atomic Learning we have evolved our successful foundation of robust eLearning technical and technology training into also offering online pedagogical professional development. We now have over 8,000 educational institutions, 400,000 educators, and 10,000,000 students taking advantage of the most extensive online professional learning library for in the industry. Our name, however, is often still connected to our technical training roots.

Our sister organization, Versifit Technologies began in the industry as a custom software data management and analytics organization. Today we have expanded the offering which uses predictive analytics to help districts and schools of any size with accountability and school improvement, early warning and intervention, district financial and staffing operations, and student college and career readiness. Yet the brand is primarily known only for large data management projects.

Our solutions have flexed and changed in new and thoughtful ways to ensure we are always meeting the unique needs of education—now it is time for our name to catch-up!

Hoonuit, pronounced "Who knew it?" is the feeling you get when you learn something new, and represents a unification of our two organizations to create an infinite loop of knowledge and insight.

“We’re on a mission to help educators experience more “aha!” moments,” Paul Hesser, CEO at Hoonuit said. “Our solutions enable educators and administrators to assess and predict school and student needs, and for educators to take their own personal development path to tackle some of today’s most common education challenges, such as college and career readiness, student engagement and evolving instructional approaches.”

8th Annual Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day, now in its 8th year, is celebrated in over 65 countries and it is an opportunity to recognize the importance of the Internet in the lives of children and young people, and to help work to ensure that they and those that support children, parents, caregivers, grandparents, teachers, know how to get the most out of this resource and use it safely and responsibly.

The focus this year, particularly in the UK is on games and gaming, as well as communicating the wider message that online actions can have offline consequences, both now and in the future. Research shows that games are enormously popular with children, with 86% of 9-16 year olds use the internet to play games, and in terms of online activity for young people it comes second only to school work.
