Hey all!

I work for an educational website caled and we're looking to get some really great AutoCAD teachers to teach on the site.  Who would you want to teach you AutoCAD, in a perfect world? Thanks for the help, and check out the upcoming design courses on Udemy!

ME, and I think that would apply to most people. I took a course once to get some qualifications on paper, but I couldn't tell you anything that I use from that. And I never have found the need to draw a watering can again. Having said that I find the best way to learn is get the question right first and then look for clear simple step by step instructions, with a brief description of the theory. Many of the people who take part in these forums have helped tremendously.

For AutoCAD the teacher is, for the most part, irrelevant.  Most reasonable instructors can pass along the basics of the program which students need to have.


The real learning is actually using the product in a working environment where problems, procedures, knowledge, and deadlines differ markedly from classroom exercises.

If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.
Adopt. Adapt. Overcome. Or be overcome.
A good question will be halfway to a good answer.
