Collapse Expand


Mobile computing has become more commonplace. In this class, we will take a look at how tablets, particularly the Apple iPad mobile device, can occupy a spot in your briefcase. In this class, we will discuss both Autodesk® apps, such as AutoCAD® WS, Autodesk® Buzzsaw®, and Autodesk® Inventor® Publisher, and other third-party apps, such as PDF readers, word processors, and sketching programs. We will also touch on some cloud-based storage solutions, like Egnyte® and Dropbox™, as well as web-based apps like Google Docs™. This class will cover the basics of the different models, as well as basic operations like mail, web browsing, and app management.
