New to the Instructor Community? Start Here!
If you’re wondering how this community works, you’ve come to the right place! This forum is a place for instructors to create, share, and adopt projects, curriculum, and best practices for the classroom. There aren’t many rules for this forum other than the basic ones of being courteous when commenting, and posting your projects to the appropriate forums.
The primary reason instructors come here is to use Onshape projects that other instructors share. Projects are posted in either “Higher Education Projects” or “Secondary Education Projects” forums, depending on the content. We use “Instructor Discussion” for general conversation.
Using Community-Provided Projects:
Each project post includes a link that allows you to access the project material directly in your Onshape account. This will be in the form of a “View Only” document. Make a copy of the project document, and it’s now yours to use or adapt for your curriculum! Visit an individual project for specific instructions (such as our example project here).
In the project categories, we encourage you to use the voting blocks next to each project to help other instructors find useful projects. Click on the number to cast your vote.
When you click into a post and scroll down, you’ll see a “Flag” option. You are our eyes and ears-- use this option to notify us of inappropriate comments, and we'll be sure to look into it.As a next step, we recommend checking out our example project!
