      Easy classroom management

      Manage student projects, collaboration, grading, and feedback⁠ all in Fusion 360.

      Centralize and manage assignments and projects delivered by the students enrolled in your course.  

      Students can share a link to their design at the click of a button, and you can view and comment directly in your browser, on any device.

      Take models from other CAD programs, even in the original format, and use them directly in Fusion 360 to collaborate with your students.

      Ensure that students are making adequate process and submitting original work with file version history. 

      For low-connectivity settings, offline mode kicks in when internet goes out. Design reservations also prevent overwrites in group projects.

      All data files are securely encrypted in the cloud, meaning project files follow the student—not the device or server.
