Abstract

Technical software gets ever more essential as tools for mechanical engineers. Still, the subject is not much emphasized in our curricula, and we are challenged with making the students familiar with complex software without much teaching and without much time on the schedule. Being more of a skill than knowledge, such tools should ideally be learned with access to good tutors, but capacity is a problem here. For years we have fought with this dilemma, until we found what we think is a solution: A video-based, interactive teaching and tutoring system for our chosen 3D modelling software. The paper presents the reasoning behind this, it presents the solution as it has been developed, and also summarizes the experiences gained after a year and a half of use.
