An Interactive Web-based Learning System for Assisting Machining Technology Education

Chi-Chia Liu, Min Jou


The key technique of manufacturing methods is machining. The degree of technique of machining directly affects the quality of the product. Therefore, the machining technique is of primary importance in promoting student practice ability during the training process. Currently, practical training is applied in shop floor to discipline student?s practice ability. Much time and cost are used to teach these techniques. Particularly, computerized machines are continuously increasing in use. The development of educating engineers on computerized machines becomes much more difficult than with traditional machines. This is because of the limitation of the extremely expensive cost of teaching. The quality and quantity of teaching cannot always be promoted in this respect. The traditional teaching methods can not respond well to the needs of the future. Therefore, this research aims to the following topics;
(1).Propose the teaching strategies for the students to learning machining processing planning through web-based learning system.
(2).Establish on-line teaching material for the computer-aided manufacturing courses including CNC coding method, CNC simulation.
(3).Develop the virtual machining laboratory to bring the machining practical training to web-based learning system.
(4).Integrate multi-media and virtual laboratory in the developed e-learning web-based system to enhance the effectiveness of machining education through web-based system.
