Pluralsight Becomes an Official Autodesk Training Partner, Debuts Maya 2017 Courses

Pluralsight Now One of Five Autodesk Authorized Publishers 

“Exploring Maya 2017” Launches on Autodesk Knowledge Network

SALT LAKE CITY – Pluralsight, the global leader in online learning for technology professionals, today announced a new partnership with Autodesk, a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. The partnership delivers free Pluralsight training videos to the Autodesk Knowledge Network, an online community that brings together the collective knowledge of Autodesk customers and experts and allows them to converse, educate and share information. Effective immediately, Autodesk subscribers will have access to nearly 250 Pluralsight training clips, including the new “Exploring Maya 2017,” a one-hour overview of the famed 3D platform.

“I am extremely excited and proud to partner with Autodesk on their Knowledge Network; the combination of our instructors and their products is a powerful one,” said Andy Rahden, vice president of creative, design and engineering at Pluralsight. “Now designers can gain new tricks and techniques from some of the best instructors around, for free, on the Autodesk Knowledge Network, or through expanded courses on our technology learning platform.”

Pluralsight’s coursework will add new insights from industry experts with years of experience teaching Autodesk products to the Autodesk Knowledge Network. The training materials cover several subjects – Maya, Fusion 360, 3ds Max, Revit, Inventor, etc. – with dedicated lessons and documents for visual effects, gaming, animation and design.

“By partnering with Pluralsight, we can offer Autodesk users a range of the best possible tools to help them succeed,” said Tom Williams, director of the Autodesk Knowledge Network at Autodesk. “As the Autodesk Knowledge Network continues to grow, Pluralsight’s years of experience with online training make them a natural fit for the vibrant Autodesk community.”

The two Maya courses debuted today will be taught by Justin Marshall and Eddie Russell, who have a combined 17 years of experience using and teaching Maya. The first course, “Exploring Maya 2017,” contains eight lessons and delves into the new features available in Maya. It is now available on the Autodesk website, and can be accessed directly through the help menu in Maya. The second release, “Introduction to Maya 2017,” is a complete eleven-hour course that covers the program’s full feature set. It is available through, and joins more than 600 dedicated Maya courses already available to Pluralsight members.
