This paper presents results from two web-based surveys (start-up and mid-term) executed during a first year CAD course. As a result, students’ opinions about how different online tools support their learning and student’s willingness to use rather technical CAD programs at home were studied. This information will help to focus and utilize teaching resources better and enables to move the teaching of CAD from learning the software to utilizing computer-aided tools and methods in a product design process.
