Many downloads and lesson material related to specific Autodesk products and industries are available on this new portal.
I have posted about the Autodesk BIM Curriculum before, but it is worth mentioning again. It is a great collection of resources, videos, whitepapers, downloadables, and targeted lessons that can help improve your understanding and ability when it comes to specific BIM tasks.
For example, there is a focused set of lessons relating to quantity takeoff in Revit and Navisworks.
Some of these videos have also been uploaded to Youtube. Here is a playlist:

There is apparently over “20000 pages of documentation” that will be released, along with videos and 3D asset files.
It could be interesting to see how this release intersects with the development of Revit standards and Revit content globally…
The Autodesk Creative Commons “Area”:
AREA | creativecommons
“The group adopted the Creative Commons licensing which means 20,000 pages of documentation, 70 videos and 140 downloadable 3D asset files are now ready to be modified, remixed and shared globally.”
As per the above Autodesk page, “More content to come soon…”
I have reposted Alex Vysotskiy before. He recently uploaded a large set of Youtube videos, including a Basic Course and a course on the Family Editor. See playlists below:
