Autodesk Ed's Channel - Three New Student Video Collections

I was asked by Philipp Mueller, a student attending the Technical University Graz in Austria, to help spread the word about some training videos that he helped create. There are three sets of videos hosted on the Autodesk Ed's Channel at You Tube. By the way, Alan James Wooldridge posted about the Detailing videos earlier on his Revit Structure Learning Curve Blog.
  • Getting Started Video Tutorials for Revit Architecture 2011 (14 Videos +/-85 minutes)
  • Advanced Detailing Tutorial for Autodesk Revit Architecture 2011 (12 Videos +/- 65 minutes)
  • Professional Mass Modeling & Render Video Tutorials for Autodesk Revit Architecture 2011 (12 Videos +/- 74 minutes)
I find You Tube's dump-it-all-in-there approach to video organization a bit frustrating so gratefully Philipp provided the following links for each video collection:
