BARRINGTON, Ill. - May 30, 2013 - PRLog -- New Vision Software, Incorporated (NVSI), announces SofTutor® for MicroStation® 2D & 3D training for version 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 Just-In-Time Learning search and display functions. In addition, learners can consult specific “how to” information without leaving MicroStation using SofTutor’s unique, resizable overlay windows. With ten hours of instruction covering 207 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, surfaces, solids 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 mentor 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 at the same time, saving you time and eliminating the frustration associated with other methods.

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.  See our "Increase ROI with Performance Based Training" whitepaper presented to the Society of Advanced Learning Technologies, Fall 2010 conference in Washington, DC.
