April 30, 2021
ASCENT, developers of professional training courseware and technical documentation for engineering applications, announced its yearly roadmap for the release of its Autodesk 2022 software learning guides including AutoCAD, Autodesk Civil 3D, Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Vault.
As an Autodesk Authorized Publisher and Developer, ASCENT released its fundamentals-level learning materials in lockstep with the software releases. Advanced-level learning materials for these and other Autodesk software will continue to release as defined in the roadmap.
“The pace of evolution of the Autodesk software is faster than ever, bringing new capabilities and enhanced productivity to the desktops and mobile devices of so many so rapidly,” says Paul Burden, director of product development for ASCENT. “As businesses evolve from the challenges over the past year, re-imagining workplace environments and hiring new employees, ASCENT has remained focused on meeting the learning needs of its partners and customers, including those delivering training virtually and those with flexible working arrangements.”
More Than 50 Courseware Options
ASCENT learning materials are used by Autodesk Training Centers, universities, corporations and individuals in more than 75 countries. They provide course structure and flexibility to accommodate different approaches to the lessons. Instructor Guides include answers to chapter review questions, timing suggestions for course pacing and often include instructor presentation files that complement the Learning Guide.
Individual learners also benefit from ASCENT courseware because it is specifically designed to have descriptive instructional material to support self-study and has detailed hands-on exercises based on real-world workflow processes so users of the courseware not only learn the software, but also best practices.
ASCENT also creates customized learning content designed to meet customers’ training challenges and provides technical writing and editing services to assist customers with their supporting product documentation, standards and workflows.
On May 13, at 11 a.m. ET, Jennifer MacMillan and Ronda Wiley will present a “What’s New in the Autodesk 2022 Courseware” webcast. Topics covered will include key updates to the Autodesk 2022 software releases and how they affect the ASCENT Learning Guides, as well as a focus on the new Inventor and AutoCAD one-day update courses. Attendance is free, butregistration is required.
