LAS VEGAS, NV (Autodesk University 2014) — The boys from White Frog were clearly having a good time in their suite high above the strip in the Mandalay Bay Hotel. The party was part of their “aggressive rollout” to introduce their Digital Learning Platform, the biggest part of which is training for Autodesk products. White Frog intends to take respectable training content and create modules that can be consumed over the Internet. But rather than the dry, business-like treatment you have come to expect from CAD, CAM and CAE training videos, White Frog intends to add a splash of show biz. Professional actors will be used for the presentations.
White Frog was created by Paul Woddy and Peter Routledge, who have backgrounds in support of AEC software products. They have been producing Revit tutorials for years. White Frog does not intend to stay within AEC, saying their approach to using training content with professional presentation can be applied toward any sort of subject or business.
