GRAPHISOFT reseller, ARCHVISTA, has developed a way for architects, designers and home builders to brush up on their skills. This cutting-edge learning technology and virtual in-person training at affordable pricing, is known as LEARNVIRTUAL.

The online learning platform focuses on ARCHICAD In-Practice. Featuring online case study presentations by seasoned professionals sharing their practical insights and courses taught by experienced coaches, LEARNVIRTUAL also provides hundreds of OnDemand Courses that teach the fundamentals of ARCHICAD.

Thomas M. Simmons, creator of LEARNVIRTUAL says giving practical, one-on-one instruction served as motivation for the program’s creation. 

“Over the years, we’ve seen people improve how they use ARCHICAD in the workplace when they learn from peer experience. In this way, LEARNVIRTUAL is ideal for architects and designers who are getting a team on board with ARCHICAD or beginning to adjust their workflow,” said Thomas M. Simmons, creator of LEARNVIRTUAL. “Working in cooperation with GRAPHISOFT North America, our hybrid-learning approach marries real-world experience with how-to expertise to help professionals advance their practice as well as their skills.”

GRAPHISOFT North America Managing Director, Steve Benford expressed support for the effort saying, “GRAPHISOFT North America understands the value of supporting our users and helping to grow their knowledge base. The team at LEARNVIRTUAL has created top-notch resources for firms at all stages of implementing ARCHICAD. We are pleased to endorse their training platform, which aligns with our mission to provide support and guidance to architects, designers and home builders.” 

The next live online event at LEARNVIRUAL, Adding Value to Services with BIM is scheduled for Thursday, September 22, at 12pm PDT. It is an opportunity for participants to gain insight from Richard Crowe with Gilchrist Ross Crowe Architects of Tallahassee, Florida, as he shares how his firm adds value to their design and service through the strategic use of BIM on projects. Building on that same topic, a virtual training session from LEARNVIRTUAL Coaches scheduled for Thursday, September 29, at 12pm PDT will be BIMx and Sharing Model Data. You can also take part in Ask a Coach – Open Forum on Thursday, October 6, at 12pm PDT and get advice on any ARCHICAD-related matter. Live sessions are recorded and posted for later viewing in case a member cannot attend the virtual course.

Nearly 200 OnDemand Courses round out the ARCHICAD In-Practice program. Members can learn basic skills as well as advanced techniques for making the most of ARCHICAD. Topics range from ARCHICAD Basic Training to Setting Up Office Standards.

    I have been curious about the quality of the training offered by LearnVirtual. I’ve been particularly wondering about their Archicad Standards course line, 7 lessons on templates, schedules, graphic standards, preferences, etc. and available only through their Premium membership. It is difficult to find reviews or feedback of their content, though, so I am wondering if anyone reading this blog has any experience with the online on-demand lessons, etc.
