What makes your courses and tutorials better than anyone else?
Our courses and tutorials are written by experts who have used the software for years, often as CAD managers and designers. These authors follow stringent procedures to produce tutorials that meet the high Axiom required standards. Every online course begins with a very detailed syllabus that includes a course description, objectives and an outline long before any videos are recorded.
Once produced, the courses remain as very small modules to ensure students can go through the materials successfully with one to two hours. This allows even the busiest person to fit learning into their schedule without having to stop production. LearningBay courses include high resolution videos with full playback controls, information pages that provide word definitions or additional data, as well as a built-in search engine. Finally, a worksheet is provided to document what you have learned.
What if I have questions about a lesson or something seems to be missing from a course?
Axiom encourages students to send all questions about the course or the actual software directly to us in an email. Our instructors review every inquiry and provide appropriate answers. Support is provided which can include a response e-mail, sending an additional PDF document or a phone call and web video conference. When appropriate, provided answers are incorporated into the related course to ensure future students will not have these same questions.
