I am always on the lookout for blended methods of learning.
The classroom and Instructor Led Training (ILT) is STILL paramount to learning, but the classroom is only one place to learn. Due to the many new technologies out there; YouTube, video training and the like, so there are now many different ways in which you can “blend” both pre and post-learning skills in to what you learn in the classroom.
I mention YouTube as a prime example. You can view YouTube on your PC, laptop, tablet and phone, making it VERY accessible.
One of the larger UK-based Autodesk partners and resellers, Symetri, has created short YouTube tips and tricks videos on their YouTube channel.
Here is an example of what you can find on the Symetri channel. This video shows you how to use visibility states to merge a number of standard AutoCAD blocks in to one dynamic block.
This is great material for post-classroom blended learning.
