Welcome Back to School!


SolidProfessor Tips

 It’s back to school time!  Here are a few tips to help you integrate SolidProfessor into your class this school year.  Did you know you can…
  • give students a baseline assessment to show growth
  • embed SolidProfessor assignments in websites like Canvas, Moodle, Blackboard, etc.
  • add or edit due dates to existing assignments
If you want to know more about these tips and others (or if you simply want a review of account features), just let us know!

New Courses Available!

We’re excited to share more details about the courses we released this summer!

SOLIDWORKS 101 – Academic 2015 and CSWA Prep Course: We updated our 101 – Academic course for the 2015 version of SOLIDWORKS.  This course pulls its test preparation lessons from our CSWA Prep course, also updated this summer.  Both of these courses now mimic the CSWA testing environment, allowing students to familiarize themselves with the format of test questions, models, and interface.

X9 Mill Mastercam 2D Course: This course covers how to use Mastercam to create 2D geometry and 2D toolpaths for milling parts on a vertical CNC milling machine.

CSWP/E Prep Course: If you’re teaching advanced users of SOLIDWORKS or want to improve your own skills, check out our course that prepares you for the SOLIDWORKS Professional and Expert certification tests.

Revit for Beginners: We developed our 2016 Revit for Beginners course as an entry point for those new to architectural design using Revit. Our goal for this course is to make users comfortable with the most essential tools and functions in Revit within just an hour or two so that they can begin creating professional architectural models and construction documents.

New Year, New Goals!

Are you preparing your students for industry certification?  Does your robotics team have its sights set on nationals?  Tell me more about your class and your students!  I’d love to hear how you use SolidProfessor in your classroom, what your students think, and what you’re aiming to accomplish this year!

 Share your students’ story (and receive some SP gear)!
