needed a way to vary the learning experience and make it available
anytime, anywhere. We use our CADLearning site in the classroom as a
different way of presenting to our students. Then we take it to the next
level, allowing students to log on and continue learning - anywhere in
the world and whenever they need it (Network Version).

would just like to say Thank You for offering such an informative and
easy to use training solution. As a project manager with no formal
training in Autodesk Architectural Desktop, I have found your training
videos to be just what I needed to understand the various tools included
in the program. The step by step techniques shown in your videos is
just what I needed to start being productive with the software.
Actually, your training program showed me things that I did't even
realise the program was capable of. With the help of your training
video, I'm able to see a return on my investment in the software. I have
your product installed on my laptop so that it goes where I go. It is
quick and easy to reference your training video sections as I'm working
on a project. I'm currently budgeting more copies of your training
solutions so that each of our operators have it available on their
workstations. Thanks again for a great product."
