Find information here about setting up an Autodesk account and accessing Autodesk University classes on the AU website. For information about contributing to AU, learn about our call for proposals process; and for information on attending AU conferences, read the AU event FAQ.
AU online is an extension of AU events held around the world. Through the site, you can find most classes that have been presented and recorded at Autodesk University Las Vegas, as well as classes and sessions from AU International events. Check back often as we expand AU online into a year-round learning destination focused on professional development and the skills that improve your industry practice.
No. Most AU learning content is accessible to anyone, anywhere. You can also download material and save classes to access through My AU if you're logged in with your Autodesk Account.
My AU is your personal dashboard that will host all the classes you’ve saved and viewed. You can access all the classes you registered for if you attended Autodesk University Las Vegas 2014, 2015, or 2016, as well as any materials you collected in the Exhibit Hall.
While anyone can watch recorded classes online, you’ll need an account to download class materials including sample data sets, class guides, and more. Having an AU account will also allow you to save classes to watch later, keep track of what you’ve already watched, create and share playlists, and follow your favorite AU speakers. (This feature is coming soon.)
Setting up an Autodesk account is simple. (And free.) Create your account now.
If you’ve attended an AU event or already have an Autodesk account, you can use it to log in to AU online. Your Autodesk account and your Autodesk University account are the same thing.
A big zero. Nada. It’s free to set up an account and access all the online materials including recorded classes.
If you already have an Autodesk account and need help, check out the Autodesk account FAQ for answers to all your questions, including how to retrieve your Autodesk ID or password.
You may use AU materials if you give AU and the author(s) credit. (Seems fair, right?)
AU materials may be translated, but since we don't check translations you must include the following disclaimer:
"These Autodesk University materials have been translated into [LANGUAGE] by [YOUR INSTITUTION]. Autodesk University authors and Autodesk University have not reviewed or approved these translations and bear no responsibility for any inaccuracies in translation. Any inaccuracies or other defects contained in this material, due to inaccuracies in language translation, are the sole responsibility of [YOUR INSTITUTION] and not Autodesk University.”
As long as you include this disclaimer, we encourage you to spread AU learning around the world.
While our goal is for AU content to reach and inspire Autodesk users around the world, we do have a few rules:
We’re glad you asked. Here’s the proper citation format:
"This material was originally created for or adapted from material created for Autodesk University [YEAR]. Copyright © [YEAR] Autodesk, Inc. [FACULTY MEMBER’S NAME, IF APPLICABLE]."
AU speakers retain ownership and copyright of all materials they create for Autodesk University. Autodesk retains ownership of other materials.
You sure can. Our new download feature gives you access to videos so you can watch them anytime, anywhere—with or without a Wi-Fi connection.
We’re always looking for Autodesk experts to contribute to Autodesk University events and our online portal. We‘ll soon be rolling out a year-round program for content contribution, or visit the Autodesk Knowledge Network and become a contributor today. In the meantime, if you have a great idea for a topic and want to contribute, check out the Call for Proposals for updated information or send an email to AUsubmissions@autodesk.com.
The Autodesk Contributor Profile combines a single public-facing profile which aggregates your most important contribution information—which remains the same no matter where you are on Autodesk properties—along with information specific to the property. You can access the Autodesk Account FAQ for more information or visit www.autodesk.com/profile.
Not every session from the AU conference finds its way online. Roundtables, Panels, and most Hands-on Labs offer learning experiences that focus on interactions with the AU community of experts and are better left live and in-person. If you’re looking for a class from way back, it’s possible it’s no longer on the AU website. Try searching for the class on the AUGI website, where many of our sessions from years past can be found. (Shameless plug: AUGI is near and dear—if you’re not already a member, please consider joining.)
We try to focus our recording efforts on the sessions that provide the most rigorous, in-product learning available. Classes offering thought leadership on the changing face of industry, engineering, and design practice are often not recorded. The good news is that you can download the class handouts and presentation materials if a video isn’t available. Chances are you’ll find amazing, rich learning content that you won’t find anywhere else. And if you do come across written class materials that aren’t up to snuff, we want to hear about it.
