Overview

MOOC Workbench is an external workbench with which you can follow interactive tutorial and make evaluation of your work directly in FreeCAD interface.

The MOOC workbench offers 2 tools, interactive tutorials and evaluations.

Interactive tutorials (also called Player) are step-by-step guided exercises with objective checks. It launches directly into FreeCAD and allows you to advance step by step in the modeling of an object. The user has a text, a video and above all a check that the objectives have been achieved.

Evaluations (also called Grader) consist of a small program that checks certain criteria of a FreeCAD document, for example, the presence of a part body, a sketch or the final volume.


Installation

This workbench can be easily installed and updated from the Addon Manager available in FreeCAD 0.17 and above. For FreeCAD 0.16 users and other install methods, please refer to installing additional contents.

External workbenches

FreeCAD workbenches are easy to program in Python, there are therefore many people developing additional workbenches outside of the FreeCAD main developers.

The external workbenches page has some information and tutorials on some of them, and the FreeCAD Addons project aims at gathering them and making them easily installable from within FreeCAD.

New workbenches are in development, stay tuned!
