  • Going Green with BIM and GIS

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    This interactive 2-hour online course will expose planning, design, and construction professionals to the importance of using BIM and GIS to work collaboratively throughout projects and to help professionals develop a thorough understanding of how these technological tools provide critical information when making sustainability decisions.

    The goal of sustainable design is to create healthy environments through environmentally responsible planning and development. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Building Information Models (BIM) are both sophisticated technological tools that provide information in a more efficient and readily available manner than traditional design tools (e.g., CAD, maps). Traditional tools prove too costly, too time-consuming, and do not contain sufficient information for environmentally focused assessments and performance analysis. This interactive 2-hour online course will expose planning, design, and construction professionals to the importance of using Building Information Models (BIM) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to work collaboratively throughout projects and to help professionals develop a thorough understanding of how these technological tools provide critical information when making sustainability decisions. GIS and BIM allow project team members to answer questions and solve problems by warehousing data that can be quickly analyzed and easily shared. Both GIS and BIM allow for providing consistency in coordinating changes for the design team and allow advanced visualization before project siting (GIS), design, or construction (BIM) has taken place. (Intermediate - 2 hours).

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    After completing this course, you will be able to:

    • Discuss the origins of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
    • Recognize the benefits of using BIM and GIS for environmental consideration during the planning, design, construction, and operation processes.
    • Identify the critical role BIM and GIS play to provide critical information when making sustainability decisions.
    • Discuss some of the potential benefits for using BIM and GIS.
    • Explain the current limitations of BIM and GIS.
    • Recognize who benefits from the use of BIM and GIS.

  • Smart Business Writing: 4 Stages to Writing Your Best

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    This 1-hour course will help you improve your skills and avoid careless errors by focusing on four stages of writing: preparing, planning, drafting, and editing (revising and finalizing).

    Some people thinks that in the grand sceheme of things, excellence in writing isn’t all that important as long as you get the General idea accross. But the sentence above is a perfect illustration of why that simply isn’t true: Did it make you wary to see that the first sentence of a course intended to teach you writing tips was full of errors? Good writing gives you and your ideas authority, visibility, and stature. Bad writing, on the other hand, can make readers question your credibility and/or expertise, can be costly to a business, and can even damage the career of the writer. Inefficient, unclear, misleading, irrelevant, sloppy or deceptive written communication costs companies across the board billions each year.
