New Vision Software, Incorporated (NVSI), announces for SofTutor for AutoCAD 2D & 3D. SofTutor reduces learning time on drawing and designing by up to 70 percent with its easy to use 100 percent follow-along, learn-by-doing method. In addition, learners can consult specific “how to” information without leaving AutoCAD using SofTutor’s unique, re-sizable overlay window.
Originally created due to frustration with e-Learning that requires a lot of reading or listening to lectures. SofTutor uses a performance-based learning technology which reduces the learning time, increases retention and engages the learner in the learning process, which makes learning more enjoyable.
Tech support costs decrease as well since searching for a topic automatically fast forwards to the section of the tutorial where that topic is discussed. After playing the relevant material, SofTutor will pause without user intervention.
Unlike typical e-learning products that reproduce the classroom training environment online, SofTutor reproduces instruction to provide a one-on-one training experience. "Our goal was simple. We wanted to reduce the time it takes to learn, increase retention and help our customers be more competitive by saving training costs and getting trainees back to work faster.", says founder Randy Hilgers.
Typical e-learning teaches in three steps: 1) Lecture, 2) Remember, 3) Try or be Tested Later. SofTutor teaches in one step: 1) Try it Now! Typical e-Learning products lecture or "tell you what to do". SofTutor "shows you what to do" and allows you to follow along with the instruction.
As a result of reducing the time it takes to learn, SofTutor has one of the industry’s highest ROI (Return On your training Investment). SofTutor reduces the labor costs associated with learning and users who use SofTutor to learn can learn in 1/2 to 1/3 the time of traditional training. When you consider the labor costs of learning, SofTutor usually pays for itself within the first few days of use. Furthermore, users will get back to work faster. Depending on your current method of training SofTutor can save you a few hundred to a over a thousand dollars per employee being trained.
Classroom, schools, concurrent user, site and enterprise customers can use SofTutor for technical support and with optional authoring tools their help desk staff can add their own content, hundreds of 3rd party training titles and or thousands of public domain videos on the web into their SofTutor Learning System.
