Our students love us

I really enjoyed the BIMcollab course. It is a great starting point in the world of BIM. They offer a good structure for the important parts of how to use the program, but there is still a lot of information to be learned for the one to be able to use it at the highest level.

A nice overview of the services that BIMcollab Zoom provides. One can easily learn how to navigate in the Model Viewer, how to collaborate with other participants in the project and how to generate and manage issues in order to better organize the workflow and communication.
Great course to get the idea of BIMcollab Zoom and good basis for taking first steps in my own project.
