Infobase Learning Cloud (formerly Hoonuit) is an online resource that has how-to training on common software and devices. Each online training course is made up of short 1- to 3-minute video segments. This learn-at-your-own-pace solution offers the flexibility to skip lessons you’re already familiar with and review lessons that prove more difficult. All training is online and on-demand.   

Join us for a Live Training!
