Sustainable design education is an important yet underserved topic, and online resources can make it accessible to far more students and educators. One example is the Autodesk Sustainability Workshop, an online collection of video tutorials and supporting materials that can be used either by individuals to learn, or by educators to teach the principles and practical skills related to green design. Dozens of short, modular videos span the range of introductory, fundamental principles in sustainability, to the specific operations of analytical software tools. Related case studies and data sets demonstrate the concepts with real-world examples. All the available content is on focused topics and is meant to be easily inserted into curricula as educators see fit. This paper and presentation will show how the Autodesk Sustainability Workshop is changing the way students learn and teachers educate on sustainability, to better prepare future designers and engineers to create a more sustainable world.
