CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA — Axiom, one of the world’s most experienced developers of time-saving CAD software products and training, announces the release of AutoCAD 2011 Essentials Beginner Library. With many companies experiencing reduced training budgets, there is an increasing demand for AutoCAD 2011 training courses that are affordable, effective and convenient. By training at their own desk, on a schedule and pace that fits the needs of CAD managers and users, LearningBay makes the task of training far more convenient and with less expense. According to LearningBay’s users, LearningBay courses are effective in getting users up to speed fast.
The first in a series of libraries for AutoCAD 2011, this new release contains ten browser-based courses with a total of 289 informative videos and 212 pages of course instruction. While this series of AutoCAD training courses is suitable for beginners, the courses can also be used by experienced AutoCAD users to fill in any gaps of knowledge they may have — especially when moving from a previous version of AutoCAD.
The training is considerably more affordable than sending users out for training and can be delivered whenever most convenient. This “always on” training means it can be accessed as often as users like, for training, review or refresher whenever it’s needed. “With no travel costs, no instructor costs, no waiting and no scheduling to worry about, this training makes AutoCAD users billable faster and at a reduced cost,” says Mike Arroyo, Axiom’s world-renowned CAD-training evangelist.
As an online solution, LearningBay is affordable, easy to use and can be quickly implemented in virtually any office with an Internet connection. (Companies can also host learning content themselves, host the content on a dedicated server managed by Axiom or purchase the learning content on CDs or DVDs.) LearningBay is far less expensive than classroom training and also includes the ability to test and evaluate the skills of users and automatically builds remedial content based on the results. Student enrollments, progress and test scores are a useful tool for managers and instructors to evaluate their departmental learning activities.
Each of the courses is broken down into easily assimilable sections, allowing users to spend as little as 30 minutes a day on study. The courses cover topics such as learning how to:
- Effectively use and customize the Quick Access toolbar.
- Build personal workspaces using the AutoCAD ribbon.
- Work with the Application window in the AutoCAD drawing environment.
- Open and switch between multiple drawings and use Drawing window tools to control what portion of the drawing is displayed.
- Plot and publish drawings.
The course also covers, in-depth, essential topics such as the ribbon interface, the Drawing window, the Status bar and basic drawing techniques.
This new set of on-line courses uses LearningBay’s Professional Development Hours (also known as Continuing Education Hours) format, allowing users to count study time toward their professional license renewal (in states where permitted). Each course comes with the following:
- Videos covering the materials of the course.
- Step-by-step labs and sample files, allowing students to practice on actual drawing files.
- Instructor Notes, where the instructor expresses insights or has tips relating to the lesson pages.
- A course syllabus, complete with a course description, course objectives, a list of topics and a course completion plan.
- Student worksheets to make it easy to document student progress.
