DemosCAD LT is a skills-based DEMONSTRATION application that helps users to master all the tools and commands in AutoCAD LT software from Autodesk. Ideal for High School Students, DemosCAD LT introduces High School students aspiring to be Engineers, Surveyors, Architects, Designers, to Computer Aided Design (CAD) and lets them become passionate and proficient in AutoCAD LT
The syllabus for secondary schools in Kenya (and the world over) has been revised to enable the learner apply skills acquired in school to develop mentally, morally, socially and spiritually and appreciate career opportunities that exist in the world of technology today. The syllabus includes Computer Studies as an examinable unit under the 8-4-4 education system. The aim of this is to equip students with basic information and communication technology (ICT) skills that will enable them use ICT for accomplishing day-to-day tasks at school, home and in the world of work.
One application area of ICT is in Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM). CAD, as we know it has gradually replaced the use of traditional tools such as rulers, pens and T-squares because of the numerous benefits derived from its use. Design professionals such as architects, engineers and fashion designers are now relying on CAD to carry out their tasks.
Students who are joining higher institutions of learning such as universities and colleges to pursue design-based careers are now expected to have basic CAD skills at entry level. This is indeed proof that these tools are now integral in our day-to-day activities.
DemosCAD LT built around AutoCAD LT software works to equip High School Students interested in pursuing technical courses such as Architecture or Engineering with the much needed skills in AutoCAD that are critical for those joining institutions of higher learning whether universities or colleges.
The interface of DemosCAD LT is similar to that of Autodesk AutoCAD LT software-the most commonly used and preferred software for CAD students in the world. The only difference is in the functionalities; Whereas AutoCAD LT commands lets you execute your CAD tasks and ideas, DemosCAD LT on the other hand contains demonstration tools that show you how to carry out designing, annotation and drafting tasks with AutoCAD LT. Students are therefore able to use AutoCAD LT as though they are experts in AutoCAD.
