Autodesk Design Academy helps educators unlock student creativity by granting free access to projects and courses that introduce students to new technologies and practices in 3D design. Each Design Academy project asks students to use Design Thinking and software skills to make innovative designs that have an impact on people’s lives. Authored by leading architects, engineers, artists, and animators, every one of our projects and courses delivers measurable results aligned with academic and industry standards. Our free learning resources, combined with Autodesk’s commitment to providing free educational software worldwide, gives educators the full toolset they need to free their students’ imaginations through design.
On December 2 at 4pm EDT, Design Academy will be hosting a live On Air event with Dr. Issa, professor at the Rinker School of Construction Management at the University of Florida. In this webinar, Dr. Issa will speak about best practices for introducing reality computing into construction management curricula, as well as the benefits for students learning these new technologies in being prepared for jobs in industry after graduation. In addition to the webinar, which will be recorded, Dr. Issa is creating a course on Reality Computing in Design and Construction for Design Academy that will give students and educators the resources they need to get started learning the content and bringing it into the classroom.
While the audience of Design Academy is primarily educators, enthusiasts and industry professionals can also find valuable content there—whether it’s to brush up on their own skills, train their employees, or learn about trends in education.
