How do I start learning?

In Tekla Campus >> Learn you can find our collection of learning materials. The materials are divided into lessons, which include a tutorial video and tests to prove your skills.

You can view all the available lessons and their contents in the Lesson Plan. The Lesson Plan also shows your learning progress and provides guidance on the suggested order of taking the lessons.

Your learning progress will be recorded only when you are logged in. Remember to log in to Tekla Campus to view the video tutorials and take the tests.

 

How do I pass a lesson?

The tutorial video includes the main learning content of the lesson. The video will guide you through the subject of the lesson.

The tests are scored exercises that measure your learning and determine if you have passed the lesson. If the questions seem difficult, you can open hints to help you find the answer with a small tradeoff of the final score.

You complete the lesson once you pass all the tests in that lesson.

 

How do I use my portfolio?

Your portfolio is where you showcase your skills with Tekla Structures. You can upload a snapshot of your model and add a title and a description to it. If you want to share the whole model file package, you can attach a link from which others can download the model.

 

How do I recognize an official Tekla User?

An official Tekla User is a person who works for Tekla and has been verified to represent Tekla in Tekla Campus. A red circle around the user's profile picture is the indicator a user is an official Tekla User.
