Welcome to CAD 201, Computer Aided Drafting and Design, offered by the Extended Learning Institute of Northern Virginia Community College.
In this course you will learn Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) applications, concepts and techniques as applied to completing, from beginning to end, any 2 Dimensional (2D) drawing.
The primary teaching/learning modality will be via video clips. In addition to the video clips there will be exercises that address the ideas, concepts and techniques of the associated session; a project, selected by you with guidance from me; and communication with me and other learners. There will be a number of quizzes designed to re-enforce what you have learned as well as two written tests.
What you learn in this course will benefit you by providing knowledge and skills in the operation and application of a CAD system.
One or more of the following is strongly recommended for entry into this course:
