TEDCF Ships Inventor 2009 Interactive Course Part 1

Springville, CA, May 19, 2008 – TEDCF Publishing, a leading Authorized Autodesk Publisher of interactive courses for Autodesk Inventor, today announced the availability of Accelerated Productivity 2009: Solid Modeling, the first in a series of certified courses for Autodesk Inventor 2009.

Accelerated Productivity 2009: Solid Modeling is a comprehensive interactive course showing how to use all the commands associated with creating solid models. It can be launched from your desktop or from the Inventor menu bar. Using the latest multimedia technology, users can watch animated movies that describe how to effectively and productively use the commands.

The Lesson Player, shown above, fills a 1024 X 768 screen. It automatically tracks your study sessions, so all you need is a computer with speakers and a CD Drive, and the Lesson Player does the rest

“This year we focused our attention of key requests from our customers,” said David Melvin, PE, Author and Producer of the course. “We increased the size of the lesson screen by 30%, and we added caption for the hearing impaired. I was surprised to learn that many of our customers are hearing impaired or completely deaf. Now everyone can benefit from this course.”

TEDCF’s customers are amply satisfied with the power of this course, as indicated from a marketing study conducted by TEDCF. While earlier releases of their courses significantly helped new Inventor users quickly get up to speed, the study shows that users already familiar with Inventor experienced as much as a 40% increase in productivity.
