Autodesk Expands Free Access to Autodesk Design Academy Curricula

Autodesk, Inc. announced the availability of the new Autodesk Design Academy iTunes U course, marking the first time the company has shared its portfolio of curricula resources through iTunes U. Developed by educators and subject matter experts across the globe, the Autodesk Design Academy provides hundreds of standards-aligned class projects to support design-based disciplines in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM).

A key component of the Autodesk Design Academy iTunes U course is learning materials about the use of Autodesk Fusion 360, which brings CAD, CAM and CAE together in the cloud.

Autodesk also launches the Autodesk Design Academy Multi-Touch book, which includes learning materials about Autodesk SketchBook Express, software that brings digital art and concept sketching to life. Both the iTunes U course and Multi-Touch book will be available for free on iPad this fall.
