學校可免費使用世界級3D設計、工程及娛樂軟件 世界第三大軟件開發製造商Autodesk一直著重軟件教育,他們相信提供創意科技和加強業界重要的意念,促使學生透過主動學習尋找到他們的角色,並可助他們製作一個更美好的將來。有見及此,Autodesk發展了Academic Resource Center (ARC),將旗下每個過萬元的軟件免費提供世界各地大小學府免費使用

天行凝方在香港一直佔有Autodesk軟件教學的領導地位,尤其建築及工程業軟件培訓包括AutoCAD繪圖技術培訓、近年興起有助環保建築的建築信息模型(BIM)技術,以及打造名聞世界的電影阿凡達所用的數碼可視化軟件3Ds Max等。

作為Autodesk其中一個最有代表性的拍檔,天行凝方在2013年9月21日於旺角培訓中心舉辦了第一場的「Autodesk創意校園計劃免費講座」,邀請本港中小學和專上學府參與,目的是為各學院設立ARC,以免費軟件開展創意教育。 講座中,天行凝方高級事務經理邱頌華先生介紹了ARC幾個可用的軟件包括AutoCAD、Revit、3ds Max,還有產品及機械工業設計軟件Inventor,平面手繪應用Sketchbook Pro,以及入門的3D軟件AutoCAD 123D等。 邱先生更跟各位在場的老師分享現有的創意教學及未來的計劃,部分學府原來已早有使用Autodesk軟件教學,或打算使用,但他們一致表示過往購買的商用軟件價錢高昂,令人止步,而ARC可說是他們的佳音。 令人驚訝的是一些中小學亦一直支持創意教育,他們的學生亦一直以其他軟件制作出優秀的作品,惟部分軟件已經很舊,卻未能採購更新的版本,讓學生接觸新技術。通過認識Autodesk軟件及ARC後,老師們都認為初學的學生配置各種易入門的軟件便可讓他們更早發掘到其興趣,同時為有志的學生配置專業的軟件,亦能更加發揮學生的潛能
除使各種教學實例的分享外,邱先生亦提到學生們可考取各種Autodesk專業認證,為學生在投身社會前得到專業認可。 30多間學府踴躍參與 是次講座亦包括申請程序及抽獎環節,天行凝方接獲約30間學府的ARC申請,而天行凝方亦樂意提供各種支援,以協助他們開展創意學園,而在當天申請成功的學府除可獲得Autodesk滑鼠12隻外,在天行凝方報讀Autodesk系列課程更可獲得8折優惠。 最後是抽獎環節,再次恭喜得獎者獲得由Autodesk送出的輕便1TB USB硬盤一個,同時亦多謝各位老師們的踴躍參與,讓講座在快樂的氣氛下結束,謹此我們天行凝方特別鳴謝資訊科技教育領袖協會及香港教育城提供各種協助,令是次活動獲得空前的成功。

Schools can enjoy world-class 3D Design, Engineering and Entertainment Software

Audodesk, the World’s third largest software developer and manufacturer, has been paying attention on software on academic education, they believes that by helping students to take a proactive role in their education, and enabling learning through innovative technology and reinforce the concepts critical to industry, students will be able to create a better future.  To carry out this mission, Autodesk launched Academic Resource Center (ARC), provided their softwares free for schools around the world to use for academic purpose, which softwares may cost over 10,000 per set.

Form.Welkin is the leading training center for Autodesk Software Training, especially Architectural, Engineering and Constructional software training including AutoCAD drafting skill,  and Business Information Modelling (BIM), a technology to enhance green-building; also the digital visualization tool, 3Ds Max, the tool to create the world-famous CG movie, Avatar.

Form.Welkin, as one of the most significant partner of Autodesk, held the first “Free Seminar on Autodesk Creative Campus”, which invited primary schools, secondary schools, post-graduate and universities to participate, aimed to help them with setting up their ARC, and carry out creative education with free softwares.

In the Seminar, Mr. Joshua Yau, Senior Manager of Form.Welkin Creative Technology Training introduces ARC and some of its featured softwares, including AutoCAD, Revit, 3ds Max, Inventor (Product and Mechanical design), Sketchbook Pro (Freehand graphic design) and some threshold applications like the AutoCAD 123D series.

Mr. Yau also shared with teachers regarding creative training which schools are currently included in their curriculum.  Some teachers reflected that they have been using Autodesk softwares for many years, while some others also intended to buy.  Unfortunately, the only reason that stop them from getting the updated Autodesk software was the price: the cost of commercial license is extremely high.  ARC is a breaking good news for them.

Surprisingly, some Primary and Secondary Schools has always been supporting creative education, their students had been producing outstanding works.  However, software can be outdated, and they are reluctant to purchase a newer version to let the student stay tune with the new technology.  By knowing Autodesk softwares and ARC, teacher find students can discover their interest earlier through reaching beginner softwares, while students can exert their potential through using professional softwares.

Other than practical education experience, Mr. Yau also mentioned that students can obtain Autodesk professional certificate, which benefit them before they start their career.

Active Participation from around 30 Schools

The seminar also includes a ARC registration session and lucky draw session.  Form.Welkin has received around 30 ARC registration, and on top of that, Form.Welkin is glad to assistant schools in providing creative education.  Other than the free 12 mice provided by Autodesk, successful registered ARC members can enjoy a 80% off for taking Autodesk courses in Form.Welkin.

At last, the lucky draw session.  Congratulations to the winner that took the 1Tb USB hard disk provided by Autodesk.  Thanks to every teachers who participate in our seminar which make it end with a happy atmosphere.  Also special thanks to AiTLE Association of I.T. Leaders in Education and HKEdCity in providing different supports, which lead to the event’s huge success.
