ANSYS is a comparatively easy software to learn and master owing to the efforts by the software engineers at ANSYS Inc to make ANSYS user-friendly while maintaining superior accuracy in its simulations. Despite ANSYS being a user-friendly software with a clean layout and user interface, initial training is a must for beginners to get command over the software. ANSYS learning hub is your one-stop solution to learn ANSYS and its functions.

What is ANSYS learning hub?
Over the past four decades, ANSYS learning hub is a reliable partner for engineers all over the globe to master ANSYS and improve their productivity. ANSYS learning hub is the dedicated training ground that allows ANSYS beginners to learn every solver of the software and start off their simulations (ANSYS Inc., 2018).
ANSYS learning hub is not for beginners only. Many professional engineers use this hub to keep up with the updates in the software and improve on their existing skills so that they can meet tight deadlines and produce accurate results. Therefore, ANSYS learning hub has essentially three main objectives.
- To help the engineers who are looking to learn the basics of any of the ANSYS flagship solvers and other related workflows
- Help the engineers stay updated and fresh to the software latest releases
- To help the experienced engineers to improve their skills or solve a new class of engineering problems.
What’s new in the latest ANSYS learning hub?
Previously ANSYS learning hub sessions were conducted face-to-face with a live classroom set up under an instructor. This was both cost and time ineffective, and people had to travel from different places to attend the classes. ANSYS learning hub now features a new on-demand learning platform. The on-demand ANSYS learning hub sessions are now your one-stop-shop for all your ANSYS learning needs. The ANSYS learning hub provides the user with easy access to self-paced learning sessions, different tools to effectively manage their learning goals and instructor moderated ‘learning rooms’ with constructive learning boards and extensive learning outside the standard curriculum.
The self-paced courses available at ANSYS learning hub consists of independent optional and core modules. Each includes lectures in video formats, quizzes, hands-on exercises. The self-paced courses are delivered in high-resolution videos that comprise of demos, relevant theory, and an in-depth practical demonstration.
The ANSYS learning hub has a modular nature of the course materials which enables an easy mix-and-match as demanded by the learner’s applications. It allows the users to easily navigate back to the completed modules to review them and refresh what is learned.
What are the requirements for the course modules?
The ANSYS learning hub currently has over a hundred learning modules that are categorized into ten self-paced courses alongside the live and virtual classroom schedules. The ‘learning catalog’ of the hub enables the users to search the course materials and course dates easily. It takes the users a few clicks to enroll in the classes. The users can also build their own learning plans, get a clear view on their learning history as well as view the certificates for course completion.
Similar to as in the live classroom, the ‘learning rooms’ of the ANSYS learning hub facilitates the interaction between the class participants and the instructors. The learners can directly ask the questions and reflect upon the concepts learned (ANSYS Inc., 2018). The instructors can bring in their own experience, assist the users with practical work or pose an extra challenge to the users to make sure that the users can solve the unscripted problem independently (Bhargav, 2017). Along with this, the learning rooms provides the users with many different examples, FAQs, tips and tricks and programs with additional webinars on the topic of interest.

All the users that are registered for the virtual course have access to the learning rooms. In the learning rooms, the users can ask questions to the instructor outside the session times, and the instructor can respond to them back in the room or pick up on the topic in the next training session.
The learning room is also a portal used by the instructor to post useful materials, hints, and tips. The learning room also has shortcuts to the course material, a calendar for references and important links to FRAME info and much more.
