ASCENT Unveils 2021 Autodesk Courseware Roadmap

BALTIMORE, MD, May 8, 2020 – ASCENT recently released learning materials for core Autodesk 2021 software titles including AutoCAD, Autodesk Civil 3D, Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk Revit for Architecture and Autodesk Revit for MEP. The newly released titles follow the release of the Autodesk 2021 software.

“Each year, our learning content development team begins reviewing Beta software months ahead of software release dates to determine what needs to be added or updated in our courseware. Getting updated content to our partners and clients as early as possible is something our team takes a lot of pride in,” says Paul Burden, director of product development for ASCENT. “And like the software, our learning tools also improve year after year. With the 2021 software release, we are restructuring the topics in the learning paths of our eLearning bundles. Learners will still have access to the same amount of content, but organized into much more focused and manageable groupings.”

Both Learning Guides and Instructor Guides are available in print and eBook formats and include hands-on practice exercises with supplied datasets. Instructor guides also include answers to chapter review questions and timing suggestions to help deliver the course. Many instructor guides are supplied with instructor presentation files.

ASCENT also creates customized learning and documentation content that meets the unique training needs of organizations. Professional Documentation Services from ASCENT’s editorial and instructional design team includes creating new documentation from scratch or improving existing technical documents.
