SketchUp Contexts for learning

This great little 3D mapping app from the ever and sometimes suspiciously generous Google company, is great fun, easy to use and could be best described as an AutoCad for dummies.

How SketchUp can be used for students studying anything related to design; but it could also be used to help students build a context for learning. Imagine a student in a Retail or Events Management qualification, could demonstrate competence in setting up a room for clients or developing a new shop window fit out.

All this and more can be done in Google SketchUp, so download it now and start pushing and pulling your designs into existence.
