Atomic Learning Videos

I watched a webinar today from Atomic Learning, a company that produces training videos that can be linked to from Blackboard. The product is a Blackboard plug-in, and creating links to the videos is extremely easy. They currently have videos on 250 topics. An individual license is $99 per year.
