Autodesk Expands Educational Offerings

Autodesk, Inc. has announced the company's 2013 comprehensive offering of software, cloud services and curriculum for secondary, postsecondary and vocational educational institutions. The 2013 offering includes access to the latest design and creation software suites and curricula, including specific suites for education, which help instructors teach design concepts as well as established industry processes such as Building Information Modeling (BIM), Digital Entertainment Creation, Digital Prototyping, and Sustainable Design. In addition, the new suites offer educational institutions access to Autodesk 360, a platform that allows educators to store, edit and share designs and access the computing power of the cloud.

Autodesk provides instructors with project-based learning materials to help them incorporate design technology into the classroom. The Digital STEAM Workshop, which recently was awarded a Seal of Alignment from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), includes professionally developed instructional videos and interactive lessons with 3D models for secondary teachers. All curricula are available for free download through the Autodesk Education Community.
