April 14, 2010 - PRLog -- Barrington, Illinois — New Vision Software, Incorporated (NVSI), announces for SofTutor for MicroStation 2D training for versions XM & V8i. SofTutor reduces learning time on drawing and designing by up to 70 percent with its easy to use 100% follow-along learn-by-doing  method and search and display functions. In addition, learners can consult specific “how to” information without leaving MicroStation using SofTutor’s unique, resizable overlay windows. With six hours of instruction covering 109 specific topics, learners quickly become skilled at controlling views, using levels, placing and grouping elements, manipulating and modifying elements, using text and text nodes, using cells, patterning, measuring, dimensioning, using reference files, using 2D Labs, and AutoCAD interoperability.

Originally created due to frustration with e-Learning that requires a lot of reading or listening to lectures, SofTutor uses performance-based learning to reduce training time and increase retention. Tech support costs decrease as well since searching for a topic automatically fast forwards to the section of the tutorial where that topic is discussed. After playing the relevant material, SofTutor will pause without user intervention.

Unlike typical e-learning products that reproduce the classroom training environment online, SofTutor reproduces instruction to provide a one-on-one training experience. "Our goal was simple. We wanted to reduce the time it takes to learn, increase retention and help our customers be more competitive by saving training costs and getting trainees back to work faster.", says founder Randy Hilgers.

Typical e-learning teaches in three steps: 1) Lecture, 2) Remember, 3) Try or be Tested Later. SofTutor teaches in one step: 1) Try it Now!  e-Learning products lecture or "tell you what to do".  SofTutor "shows you what to do" and allows you to follow along with the instruction.

SofTutor uses a performance-based learning technology which reduces the learning time, increases retention and engages the learner in the learning process, which makes learning more enjoyable.

Corporate or Educational SofTutor Learning System users with authoring tools can update, modify or add this training to their network.
