FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How will I know if the videos work on my computer?
Watch the free videos in each course to see how they look on your computer or mobile device. You'll need a solid Internet connection and a modern internet browser (we recommend Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox).
Can I watch the courses on my iPhone or iPad? What about Android?
Yup! As long as you have a wireless signal or Internet access, you can log in from any smartphone or tablet to watch the videos. We’ve tested the courses on iPhones and iPads, as well as a variety of Android devices. The courses look great on all devices, if we do say so ourselves.
Can I download the videos?
Sorry, downloading the video courses is not an option. But isn’t it great that you can stream them virtually anywhere?
Where can I download free software to use while I'm learning?
There are free trial versions available for all our software courses. Check out this comprehensive list of links to download trial versions of Sketchup, Autodesk software, Adobe software, Rhino 5 and Grasshopper.
