Internet Speed

In order to enjoy the rich video streaming content on Solid Edge Learning to its maximum you should ensure that your internet connection is of a sufficient speed. As a minimum we would suggest that broadband with at least 2 Mb/s is a good start. If your connection is much slower, it will not stop you from being able to use Solid Edge Learning but it will just take longer to download the videos.

There are many independent websites available that offer broadband speed checks one example is Speed Test

Searching for Training Material

The Solid Edge Learning search facility aims to make it as easy as possible for you to find the right training material as quickly as possible. It does not present a complex set of search options. Instead a search is performed across all training content, and can be made using a similar syntax to what is used in popular search engines such as Google or Yahoo.

Here are some examples:

Searching for sweep - would find all training material that contains the word sweep.

Searching for adjust* - would find all training material that contains words beginning with adjust.

Words can be marked as required or not required by using either a + or - symbol:

Searching for +round +blend - Would only return training material that contained both round and blend.

Searching for +round -blend Would only return any training material that contained the word round and not the word blend.

Words can also be contained in quotes in order to search for a particular phrase:

Searching for 'dimensions and constraints' - Would find all material that contained the exact phrase.
