Autodesk has announced the new Autodesk Design Academy iTunes U course. Developed by educators and industry experts across the globe, the Autodesk Design Academy (http://academy.autodesk.com) provides hundreds of standards-aligned class projects to support design-based disciplines, while using Autodesk’s 3D design, engineering and entertainment software.
iTunes U is the world’s largest catalog of free education content. The Autodesk Design Academy features a growing collection of lessons, projects and courses that help educators support students as they develop technical skills.
A key component of the Autodesk Design Academy iTunes U course is the use of Autodesk Fusion 360, which brings CAD, CAM and CAE together in the cloud. Autodesk is also launching the Autodesk Design Academy Multi-Touch book, which includes Autodesk SketchBook Express, bringing digital art and concept sketching to life.
Both the iTunes U course and Multi-Touch book will be available this fall. The Autodesk Design Academy complements the commitment Autodesk made in December 2014, announcing free access to its 3D design software and creativity applications to schools, educators and students around the globe.
