CAL-CBT Based Virtual Learning and Training in Machining Engineering. A Case Study: CNC Lathe
Computer-Aided Learning is currently applied for improving educational methods in order to reach teaching objectives in experimental fields, which are in a continuous renovation process. So, handling new machines learning cannot be usually carried out in Teaching Centres because of the high economical inversion required. Furthermore, the number of students / number of machines ratio is too high. This acquires special relevance in technical studies where practical learning is essential. In this work, a virtual learning and training application for a CNC lathe is presented into a virtual learning environment developed in the Manufacturing Engineering Labs of the University of Cadiz.
