I’d like to announce that my Learning AutoCAD 2013 course is now online, containing 7 hours and 25 minutes of video instruction. This is hosted by the people at video2brain and was produced in conjunction with my book publisher Sybex, an imprint of Wiley.

This course will help you master the fundamentals of AutoCAD in a series of video lessons with accompanying practice files so you can follow along every step of the way. The HD videos are available on-demand on PC, iPad, Android, and/or offline on DVD.

I now offer a complete menu of educational materials created for learning AutoCAD including:

Scott Onstott's AutoCAD Lineup

Two of my video courses are entirely free: Space Planning with Blocks in AutoCAD and Creating an Architectural Drawing in AutoCAD! I’ve made all of these options available so that you can expand your AutoCAD knowledge no matter what your skill level is at the moment.

If you are starting from scratch I recommend the Learning AutoCAD video course and my book AutoCAD 2013 and AutoCAD LT 2013 Essentials (or the 2012 version which has been translated into 7 languages). Not everyone learns in the same way and it’s great to be able to offer you content both in video and in print.

If you already have some AutoCAD experience you might want to hone your 3D skills, brush up on blocks, learn how to manage data, apply customization techniques, create architectural drawings, and/or pick up awesome pro techniques in the book I co-wrote with Lynn Allen called AutoCAD Professional Tips and Techniques.

I’ve become a one-stop AutoCAD shop! But it doesn’t end there, don’t forget to check out my books and videos on Photoshop, 3ds Max, and SketchUp while you are here…
