Columbia, MD, September 26, 2019 — Initially previewed at the 2018 Vectorworks Design Summit, global design and BIM software provider, Vectorworks, Inc., has launched a centralized e-learning platform, Vectorworks University. As the main repository of training resources, Vectorworks University is a new platform for designers, educators and users across the architecture, landscape architecture and entertainment industries.
“Vectorworks University is a tremendous new learning platform that demonstrates our commitment to our customers’ education,” said Juan Almansa, customer success director at Vectorworks. “From new customers seeking to learn our software for the first time all the way to seasoned experts, they’ll be able to master their skills in a centralized, self-paced and efficient way.”
For many decades, Vectorworks has been well-known for its helpful training content, including the Getting Started Guides, webinars, manuals, YouTube channel and Planet Vectorworks blog. Taking things one step further, Vectorworks University offers users the opportunity to learn, navigate and excel in the software. Customers will be able to find free online classes, tutorials and webinars ranging from basic to advanced levels on topics such as BIM, site modeling, entertainment design and more.
“When we’re onboarding employees new to Vectorworks software, or who need to practice their skills, we now have somewhere to send them,” said Christiaan Briggs, senior technician at Yurky Cross Chartered Architects. “Clearly a lot of thought has gone into the web design as it works very well.”
To date, the platform has over 110 hours of training and 200 pieces of content available. In the future, Vectorworks University will include localized content, multilingual support, learning paths and a certification program.
