GoSimulation on Target for Success
Richard Williams, 7/22/2014
Rarely if ever, do I get excited about finding an educational resource that has some free lessons to entice you to enroll into the full suite of lessons. This one is different from others that I have experienced because there are two basic fundamental groups of lessons on this web site that are done like a perfectly cooked steak at an upscale restaurant. You might not fully appreciate that statement unless you go to this web site to take a look for yourself. http://gosimulation.com/
I have seen many video tutorials that start you off on the basics, but rarely do you find tutorials that teach you, or set the foundation for what it is you want to learn to such a depth. GoSimulation does just that. If you have students that are being introduced to FEA Analysis they need to know some fundamentals about the properties of materials and how they react to forces applied to them. There are 16 video lessons in just Group 1 alone that will start to explain it in detail. Group 2 has another 16 and here is the list to show you what is covered.
I have met some wonderfully competent teachers over the years and I know how hard it is to lay down the ground work for something that you must teach from scratch. Wouldn't it be great to use your own lesson plans and then supplement it with someone else's who has a
great command of that same subject? A free basic plan signup is necessary to see the second group of free tutorials. There is nothing to lose here and I enjoyed everything I watched. I understand that some educational accounts are coming very soon. Check it out.
The SolidWorks Corporation has made it very easy for you with many different specialized modules that embed flawlessly into its core program. However, sometimes what is needed before using some of those modules is a background in which you can build upon while learning how to use those tools. This can give you that jump start so you can become an industry star quicker in FEA Analysis. SolidWorks Simulations is just one of those programs where a little background would be very helpful. GoSimulation, will give you a great start this way with the first 32 video lessons on why materials act like they do when forces make them react in different ways. All very worthwhile lessons to watch, even more than once.
Even in my own classes I start from the very beginning to make sure everyone understands things before going forward. Like a building that has a good foundation GoSimulation understands this and builds upon that. Not many tutorial companies take the time and effort to do this. There are 15 groups of lessons and after you view the first two free lesson groups, you will have a good foundation to build upon. Every lesson going forward is exactly what I would hope to have done in my own lesson plans. They are expertly presented and explained; every drop down menu, every possible selection, every possible term. A real winner for you and or your students. http://gosimulation.com/
