Loves our platform and content!

During the Production Meeting of 11/24, Carlie reported that she was on a call with GTP. The first thing the client told her was how much she loves our platform and content. Then she asked how we ensure consistency. Our consistency is something to be proud of.

Use CADLearning Goals to Lead your Students on a Path to Success

Our CADLearning dashboard makes it easier than ever to build out a curriculum that aligns with the Autodesk Certification Exams so your students can meet their goals!

Gamified Learning Experience

Our learning paths break goals down into badges and medallions to provide incremental achievements that are validated and measured for 100% competency. The To-Do list suggests the next lessons to watch based upon the badge that a student is closest to achieving, so they stay motivated to keep learning.

Tools to Harness Time

With time markers now included, you will know exactly how long it will take your students to finish their goals, medallions, and badges. If you want them to finish by a specific date, the burndown charts include a current trend line and an estimated time of completion to keep students on track.

SMART(er) Goals

Studies show that SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-based) goals are more likely to be completed.

CADLearning automates this process with goals that are:

Specific to the task or workflow

Measured as students earn badges

tttainable in bite-sized, digestible pieces

Relevant because they pertain to each students’ future career path

Time-based, with burndown charts to keep students on schedule

Faster Upskilling

As students take assessments and answer pop quizzes, CADLearning automatically removes lessons they have proven they know from their path. That way, they have just the content they need to progress in their studies. If they decide to change paths, all the content they have already learned is completed there, too!

More Intuitive Experience

Instructors love that CADLearning has the most comprehensive Autodesk learning library in the world. But, all of that content can be a little overwhelming. The learning path provides a more guided experience as students work toward gaining the competencies and skills that lead to real outcomes in their productivity and future careers.

CADLearning Webinars

We are happy to offer Student and Teacher webinars to our educational customers! We understand that remote learning has a curve of its own, and we want you to get the most from your CADLearning portal. So, let us guide you in the use of our online education tools.

How can CADLearning assist me in my classroom?

CADLearning is a helpful tool during your class sessions (be they online or in-person), prior to your instruction, or afterwards as reinforcement.

Let’s look at how:

Accompaniment to In-Person or Online Instruction

With short, atomized videos, you can present or share point-of-need lessons directly with your students during a class. Let our content leaders quickly and efficiently direct your students and use our included exercise files as hands-on practice.

With coverage of over 40 Autodesk products, and more being added and updated constantly, you’ll get the most up-to-date information covering any and all software you are teaching.

Assess Progress and Prior Knowledge

CADLearning provides out-of-the-box assessments within our courses that cover the breadth of the content. However, you can also create playlists from individual topics, share those with your students, and then ask them to assess themselves off of those lists.

This gives you a strong indication of the incoming knowledge of your classroom, and, armed with that information, you can tailor your teaching. After you’ve presented your lesson, use those same playlists as support lessons as well, to give your students open access to practice what they learned and thereby boost their retention rates.

Improve Retention

Providing a list of relevant lessons or directing students to requisite libraries can help keep your instruction relevant in their minds, improving knowledge retention and reducing those frequently asked questions.
