CAD in a Web Browser, with Amanda Hough

The pandemic has spurred teachers like Amanda Hough to teach CAD remotely, but how do you do that if students don’t have the hardware to run resource-heavy CAD software? Amanda uses cloud-based CAD platform OnShape, and her students run it in a web browser, no installs needed. She talks about her experience switching over to OnShape this year, its place in education even when the pandemic is over, and how she got into STEM education in the first place as a career-changed from marine biology.
