Setup Local Course Folder
It is recommended that you keep all of your course materials in one folder. As such, it is preferred for our students to create a folder on their “Local C Drive” and that they populate the required VDCI files into that folder.
Once a student has successfully logged into the VDCI Student Portal, they will be instructed to download the required data sets (project files) onto their computer. VDCI provides data sets that the student will work on in their course. Please save the ZIP file in your Download folder, and move the contents of the ZIP file into your Local Course Folder
We recommend that you have two monitors -- one which will display the VDCI Student Portal and the other will display the software program you are learning.
Single Enrollment Students: Students signing up for a single course will follow the instructions to download the 30-day trial of their required software. Instructions on how to setup the software can be found inside the course materials within the Student Portal.
Multiple course, Training Bundle and Technology Certificate Students: Students who are matriculating students at a nationally or regionally accredited College, University, or Trade School, or who are enrolled in California BPPE-approved and Nationally Accredited Program (VDCI multiple course, Training Bundle or Technology Certificate Program) are authorized by Autodesk to use the Autodesk software which is provided through the Autodesk Education Community software access program.
