Creating the metaverse for problem solving skills in manufacturing
OMIC is on a mission to develop and apply advanced metals manufacturing technologies and processes for industrial competitive advantage and academic growth. Most training programs for career and technical education (CTE) take a heavily guided approach where they give step by step instructions. This approach, while being effective at delivering specific information, fails to train for problem solving skills which are vitally important for skills transfer and motivation. In contrast, experts at Oregon Tech are taking an innovative approach to apply the HyperSkill platform to creating a VR course that is based on problem solving. This project will create 5 high quality VR simulations focusing on core machining skills. A distinguishing aspect of the project is its emphasis on leveraging data to deeply understand the learner and support them in their exploratory learning process.
