Autodesk Design Academy
Outstanding project-based tutorials for popular engineering software
Pros: Tutorials are extremely clear and well thought out for both teachers and students, and digital materials are exceptionally high-quality.
Cons: There's very little peer-to-peer support available, and most projects offer few chances to make novel choices or discover features on your own.
Bottom Line: The projects found here are a great way to teach and learn digital design; all are truly fantastic (and free!), with everything you need ready to go.
