AutoCAD 2015 – This version has the ability to remove the stamp
altogether if a Save is performed. Once a file is saved in 2015, it can
be sent to users on earlier versions, and the stamp will no longer be a
part of the file.
AutoCAD 2014 SP1 – With AutoCAD 2014 Service Pack 1 installed, DWG files will no longer show the educational plot stamp while plotting, nor will they give a warning message when opening them. However, the stamp is still attached to the file even though it is not showing. The danger is that someone with 2014 SP1 could open a file and work on it without realizing it has the educational stamp on it. If they then send that to someone without SP1, or on an earlier version, that user will see the warning and the stamp. At this time, using 2014 with SP1 will still propagate the stamp to other drawings, as in the past.

I have previously posted about MIT OpenCourseWare. There is actually a site that essentially aggregates courses from all over the web and from a number of different learning institutions, and then provides a link for you to access that particular course and the related resources. Check it out at:

Here are a couple of examples of courses that you can access (Blender, and programming in C):
The Autodesk BIM for Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Management Curriculum can be freely accessed from here. Click on the various Units on the right hand side of the page.
For example, Unit 1 contains links to various whitepapers.
You can view all of the Curriculum videos here.
