Implementing CTE Training Using Online Learning

The ongoing Covid-19 restrictions that closed many schools worldwide has changed how we think about remote learning. The new challenge for educators is to develop plans for on-going learning for Students who will remain at home.  This is even more difficult for hands on type programs like manufacturing, mechatronics and machining.

Intelitek has delivered online remote learning programs for over a decade. Most of our technology training is suitable for online learning thanks to advanced simulation tools that can be used online and from remote.

Foundation Skills

The Foundations of Manufacturing program is the ideal solution for high schools and post-secondary institutions to provide job ready skills for tomorrows essential careers. This program enables any learner to acquire the skills necessary for lifelong success in the field of Advanced Manufacturing

Foundation Skills includes 12 courses:

* Employability/Career Skills
* Safety
* Intro to Adv. Mfg
* Intro to Lean Mfg
* Math for Technicians
* Blueprint reading
* Hand Tools
* Power Tools
* Fasteners
* Lubrication
* Measurement
* Quality Control

CNC Milling/Turning

CNC Milling/Turning Technology introduces students to CNC (Computer Numerical Control) milling or turning by introducing a variety of machining applications with the versatile CNCMotion depicting the BenchMill in simulation – 100% online, on-demand!

This virtual CNC course allows students to explore topics through engaging animations and simulations of the hardware. The simulated machining center features an intuitive software interface that conforms to industrial EIA, ISO, Fanuc and G&M code standards.

Industrial Robotics

The Fundamentals and Advanced Robotics courses provides students the fundamental skills needed to operate, maintain, program and test robotic systems. The virtual courses use RoboCell, a 3D-solid modeling robotic simulation software to allow students to develop programming skills through a simulated robotic workcell.

How can you implement online learning in an instant?
Many learning management platforms like the Intelitek LearnMate 7 are hosted cloud-based solutions. This means that student access is not limited to the physical classroom. Students, teachers and administrators can access the LMS from home as well. Unless some specific security has been added, all content from Intelitek LearnMate LMS is accessible from any computer with internet access.

What programs are available for online learning?
Fully Virtual Training
The Intelitek Foundations of Manufacturing program is a program of 16 courses that are all virtual. Starting with safety, quality control, intro to manufacturing and delving into areas like tools, soft skills, and introductions to specific disciplines these courses are all comprehensive training for students entering the manufacturing, mechatronics and industrial maintenance fields.
Virtual Training with Simulation
Intelitek CTE programs are always accompanied by software where students learn the concepts of configuring and programming manufacturing equipment. To enable this in a safe and scalable classroom environment all the learning systems include real-time simulations. In these simulations, the student sees live 3D graphic representation of the equipment they are learning about. This video will show you a good example of this.

How do you replace hands on?
Many of the blended learning options Intelitek have offered include simulation software. The initial motivation was so every student can learn, program, and run exercises before they get to the hands-on equipment which may have been limited to only small groups of students. The by-product of this approach is that all our machining and robotics training programs can be implemented 100% virtually because the students can do all the exercises using the CNCmotion, RoboCell, PneuMotion, HydraMotion and PLCMotion applications integrated into our curriculum.

What computer is required?
A Windows computer with:

  • Dual Core 1.4GHz Processor or better
  • Windows 8 or 10 (32 or 64 bit)
    4GB of RAM
  • Internet connectivity is required

A simulation agent needs to be installed during setup to enable students to run the different software they need during the training.

What training programs are you offering?
The list of available online courses includes:

  • Foundations of Manufacturing (12 courses/16 hrs each)
  • Fundamentals of Robotics
  • Advanced Robotics Programming
  • CNC Milling
  • CNC Turning
  • Fundamentals of Pneumatics
  • Fundamentals of Hydraulics
  • Fundamentals of PLC programming
  • Computer Aided Manufacturing with spectraCAM Milling
  • Computer Aided Drafting with spectraCAD Engraving
