How to manage access for students

Two paths to get educational access

Easy classroom management

Manage student assignments in one place

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

View and comment in browser

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.

Use AnyCAD in Autodesk Fusion

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

Monitor student progress

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

Never worry about losing work

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

Manage data from anywhere

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