We have a rolling program of new test content creation; our aim is to double the size of the KS library this year, depending on how things go, economically speaking. So far, so good in 2011.
It will come as no great surprise to learn that Revit tops the list of customer requests, so we have a few ideas for new content coming up in the next 3-6 months.
That's not to say the existing Revit test library material isn't looking good already! We have some excellent RAC questions, authored by leading Revit protagonists Paul Aubin, Paul Woddy and Chris Senior. We have a comprehensive RST library, written in partnership with Thomas Weir. And our RMEP modules are coming along nicely, too, with the help of US based author, Tony Tedder.
It's just that people want more! We're happy to comply, so here's what we have in mind..
Revit Families - a module which looks specifically at creation of Revit families. We'll probably split this into 2 sections; one for general families and one for discipline specific content.
Revit process - a module covering the practical aspects of using Revit on a project and the impact of working in a team environment.
RAC 2012 - more basic test content for Revit Architecture 2012, linking to corresponding training courseware from authors White Frog.
RMEP 2012 - more basic test content for Revit MEP 2012, linking to corresponding training courseware from authors White Frog.
RST 2012 - more basic test content for Revit Structure 2012, linking to corresponding training courseware from authors White Frog.
Timescales are not set in stone, but work is underway on the families and process modules. We'll start the new 2012 modules in March, once the code for the new releases from Autodesk is more or less frozen! We're aiming to have much of the new library material in place by the Summer.
Last, we have some intermediate level material planned for all 3 disciplines, during the Summer/Fall period.
