In our first blog post in this series, we explored ASCENT’s printed and electronic training guides. In addition to these offerings, Autodesk users also can benefit from ASCENT’s Video-Enhanced eBooks. These versions of the Autodesk Official Training Guides contain all the same content as the corresponding printed guides, but they are also augmented with video content produced by CADLearning.
Embedded videos include explanations of product features and processes, product demonstrations, and hands-on exercises. This video content is very effective at reinforcing important learning concepts.
Based on our experience with clients, we have found that Video-Enhanced eBooks work well in situations where:
- Students have different learning styles.
- Learners want to see features and tools clearly demonstrated as they are intended to be used. In each video, it’s possible to watch every step that an expert takes to complete a particular task or operation.
- Employees want to return to their training guides to refresh themselves quickly on key concepts, tricks, and tips. Videos allow students to jog their memories in a fast, efficient way, rather than reading through text.
When you invest in engineering tools and training, you want employees to retain knowledge both during and after class. ASCENT’s Video-Enhanced eBooks are a proven way to make that happen.
