    Lesson 1: 
    Course Introduction

    This lesson describes the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, shows how to log in, and provides a tour of the user interface.

    Lesson 2: 

    This lesson discusses Dashboards, the interface to the Platform. It shows how to create, manage and modify Dashboards.

    Lesson 3: 
    Data Storage

    Learn collaborative spaces and user’s credentials. Non-CAD data is uploaded and the various functions of the Document Management app are shown.

    Lesson 4: 
    Searching and Opening Files

    This lesson will cover 3DSearch, a method to find files quickly in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and how to refine searches with Tags and shortcut wildcards to save favorite searches. Also, how to create a duplicate assembly for each user for use throughout the course.

    Lesson 5: 
    Previewing Files

    This lesson showcases the 3DPlay and 3DMarkup apps. You will learn how to review CAD data and provide feedback, as well as the functionality of the apps.

    Lesson 6: 
    Deleting Files

    Learn how to delete files from the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform using 3DSearch. Also, learn how to manage an object’s lifecycle in the Collaborative Lifecycle app. As well as, deleting files with parent/child relationships.

    Lesson 7: 

    This lesson presents many functions within the Bookmark Editor app, the gateway to your data on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. A Bookmark is created, non-CAD data is uploaded and moved through its lifecycle. A new revision is created, shared, and moved to another Collaborative Space. Deleting and removing files are also demonstrated.

    Lesson 8: 
    File Relations

    This lesson goes through the functionality of the Relations app. The parent/child relationships are displayed in a graphical format and in a datagrid. A where Used/Where Referenced analysis is performed as well.

    Lesson 9: 
    Tasks and Notifications

    Learn how to assign a task to review a model using the Collaborative Tasks app. Get an in-depth view on how It outlines the input fields when creating a task, the notifications when receiving a task, and when the task is moved through its lifecycle. The notification center is also presented to modify when and how to receive notifications.

    Lesson 10: 
    Product Structure

    This lesson reviews the structure of a SOLIDWORKS assembly in the Product Structure Explorer app. The user interface and functionality is shown to view, organize and manage the assembly and components. A basic parts list is also generated.

    Lesson 11: 
    Comparing Files

    This lesson presents the Compare app to graphically highlight the differences between geometry, structure and properties. It shows how you can compare two versions of the same model or two different models.

    Lesson 12: 
    External Collaboration

    Finally, learn how to collaborate with external collaborators using 3DDrive. See ho data is uploaded to 3DDrive, previewed in 3DPlay and shared via link to an external user. The actions of the external user, such as opening the link and reviewing the data, are demonstrated
