    thanks katie, 
    it seems when i try to select the face of main sketch it is selecting around the inside diameter of the wheel as well as going down the spoke to the hub. for whatever reason i cannot select just the inside diameter of the sketch as per what the directions are saying to. 
    i hope that makes sense

    Hi there, I wanted to report looks like the wrong closed caption file is associated with the "Creating Sketch Entities / Circles and Arcs" lesson in the Introduction to Sketching course. I see closed captions for the previous lesson, Lines and Rectangles. I've tried exiting the page/course and reloading and turning the captions on and off a few times just to make sure it wasn't a bug on my end but it persist

    Hi ermaier,

    You are correct that we have the wrong closed caption file there.  We will fix this.

    I am planning on using the High School curriculum to teach some FIRST robotics students.  I downloaded the Instructor Kit, (https://www.onshape.com/edu/instructor-kit)  which has useful videos and PDFs.

    I don't want to email all the files to every student, so I was hoping there would be links to the files.  I looked at the Relevant Links and Resources.docx, but it was not helpful.
    -The links for the videos do not match the titles.  For example, 1.1.3 – Design Intent https://www.onshape.com/videos/tutorial-design-intent
    takes you to a video about configurations.
    -The links to Exercises take you to the Onshape document templates, but do not show the pdfs to walk you through the exercises.
    -There is no link to the quizzes

    I could copy everything to my Google Drive and create links to all the files, but it seems like there should be a better way.

    Could you please give me your thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    What I'd like to know if the Instructor Kit is ever coming back.  The link above only takes you to the Education Plan info page.

    @derek_ward

    The instructor kit was taken down because it was severely outdated to the point where it was unhelpful since the UI and functionally in Onshape has changed so much from the screenshots and videos in the kit.

    What we did was invest in creating four new courses for an introduction to CAD level in an Introduction to CAD pathway that can be used in the classroom, by students and teachers in our Learning Center. We are also investing a lot of effort in creating more advanced part geometry courses like Understanding Curves and Advanced Part Design, and there will be more to come in that area!

    I know its not exactly an instructor kit with instructor-only resources, but do know all the self-paced courses, videos, and technical briefings in the Learning Center are made available to EDU subscriptions for free, (you just need to be signed in to Onshape to access). I would encourage you to use these resources for you and your students. They are made keeping both students and professionals in mind.

    Derek,

    The academic team is working on a number of new materials to help instructors in K12 and in the University space easily get started with teaching Onshape and will be rolling those out of the next few months.  We've created a one pager pdf here:  https://apps.ptc.com/schools/OnshapeEducationGettingStarted.pdf that helps to outline the resources that are available today.  We'll continue to update that as more resources are released!

    Hello,

    I am stuck in the learning center with the new Surface Modeling Learning Pathways. 
    On the Helmet exercice, I have issue with the Shell feature. I cannot remove the faceshield:


    Can someone help me? I do not see where I have a difference between the tutorial and my model.

    https://cad.onshape.com/documents/ee4b406d8335e36ac931b8ec/w/d45ee19ef7ec5f0bdf8556c7/e/b430d9d75d673442426a5cb3

    Thanks

    EDIT: I found the issue, I made a mistake of spline lenght. But still does not quite understand why the shell feature behave like this

    I have been meaning to formally go through the self paced training for some time now and finally started. This might just be me, but I find the video clips go way too fast to impart any knowledge in one or more passes (which should not be required). The speaker is talking very fast and clicking all over the menus at lighting speed. You cannot watch what's happening to the drawing and pay attention to the rapid menu navigation at the same time. In fact I venture to say that even if you were concentrating solely on the menu navigation you would be hard pressed to follow and absorb the steps.

    I suspect that the training is not going to be redone with the end user in mind anytime soon, so is there any other truly "self paced" training that isn't as frustrating as watching the available videos?

    I am in this lesson, 04. CREATING DRAFT, SHELL, AND RIB FEATURES and having trouble being able to select a profile for the extrude function. Why can I not select a sketch that I have just created?

    @jonathan_fether456 can you show a screenshot or share a document link of what you are seeing?
