Class handouts
 Vital for Hands-on Labs, Instructional
Demos, and Industry Talks!
 Class handouts live on…online…and
demonstrate your expertise.
 Like a trusted desk reference, it should
tell the whole tale and be indispensable.
 Write it. Then read it.
 Share it with someone who knows.
Class presentations
 Especially critical for Industry Talks,
Instructional Demos, and Panels.
 Highlight transitions.
 Introduce your Learning
 Mark steps in a product workflow
 Note other natural transitions
 Transitions in your presentation deck
help create learning experiences that
are structured and segmented.
 Don’t overwhelm your audience.
Lead them. Teach them.
Your audience is also online
 Nearly all class materials are
made available for free online.
 High quality handouts and
presentations are powerful
 Experts in the Autodesk University
community continue to gain
recognition – on the web and with
tools like Autodesk Screencast,
the Autodesk Online Gallery, and
Making AU online your own

Other things to remember

those watching online.
