Axiom Releases Affordable, Searchable, Video-based AutoCAD Tutorials for Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced AutoCAD Users

By on

  • CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA — Axiom, one of the world’s most experienced developers of time-saving CAD software products and training, announces the release of three AutoCAD 2011 libraries: Essentials Beginner Library, Essentials Intermediate Library, and Essentials Advanced Library. With many companies experiencing reduced training budgets, there is an increasing demand for AutoCAD 2011 training tutorials 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 users, LearningBay tutorials are effective in getting them up to speed fast.

    The complete AutoCAD 2011 library series covers beginner, intermediate and advanced tutorials with 1,187 informative videos and 628 pages of tutorial instruction, all of which is easily searchable, so users can go right to only the data they want to see. While this series of AutoCAD training tutorials is suitable to train people from the ground up, the tutorials 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. Additionally, since each tutorial is fully searchable, they also serve as a reference guide during and after training, for all levels of AutoCAD expertise.

    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 tutorials is broken down into easily understood sections, allowing users to significantly increase productivity in as little as 30 minutes a day. All the tutorials also include insider tips and secrets that AutoCAD experts use. The tutorials cover topics such as learning how to:

    • Effectively use and customize the Quick Access toolbar.
    • Build personal workspaces using the AutoCAD ribbon.
    • Easily position objects using object snaps.
    • Correctly work with layers and the drawing objects contained in them.
    • Effectively create and use blocks.
    • Annotate drawings in a myriad of ways, to provide required information about the design.

    This new set of on-line libraries 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 tutorial comes with the following:

    • Videos covering the materials of the tutorial.
    • 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 tutorial syllabus, complete with a tutorial description, tutorial objectives, a list of topics and a tutorial completion plan.
    • Student worksheets to make it easy to document student progress.
