Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Introducing Building Information Modeling (BIM), part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
So I know you're probably anxious to get into Revit right away, but before we do,…let's talk about a few high level concepts first.…For starters, just what is BIM? Well, BIM stands for Building Information…Modeling, and it's a term that was coined a few years back by Autodesk to basically…describe the process of creating virtual models that represent building facilities.…Now Revit is often heavily touted as purpose-built for building information modelling.…And this is true, but that often leads to confusion that somehow Revit and Bim equal…the same thing. Revit and Bim are not the same thing.…
Revit is a tool to help achieve Bim. And what Bim is a process that we follow…to create building model data, that is two things, coordinated and computable.…Those are the two most important tenets of BIM.…If all of the parts and pieces that make up your BIM project are fully coordinated…with one another. And don't require any manual updates to,…to keep them in sync. And if you've got a robust rich data store…of information that can be used both internally by the system, and exported out…

Skill Level Beginner
Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
