When COVID-19 hit the United Kingdom in March 2020, university teaching was significantly disrupted with many courses moving to online-only teaching. Fusion 360 software empowered us to smoothly transition to fully online courses with only a few months’ notice. This talk will discuss how Fusion 360 became an essential tool for teaching online, and how it enabled the University of Warwick School of Engineering faculty to continue to deliver high-quality teaching. We will discuss our approach to signing up and delivering the first learning experiences with Fusion 360 to a cohort of nearly 400 first-year general engineering students. We will show how students were able to continue working on both individual and group projects across all four years of the degree course remotely. And, of course, we’ll show some of the amazing and innovative work they did. With remote design teams undoubtedly being an important aspect of the future of work, it’s essential to see what students can do with design software today.
