The paper discusses the use of Virtual technology as a teaching aide as well as a communication tool for the new generation of students who not only have a passing interest but also will feel the benefits that the system will bring to new global designer/engineer.
The aim has been to immerse the designer into the world around him and let him/her learn about assembly and manufacturing in a very new way. This will enable us to tap into the group projects and allow a more virtual interactive process. The whole methodology and application is trying to be innovative and interactive. This will hopefully also address one of the biggest gripe of the students as mentioned in National Student Survey (NSS) regarding feedback by making sure that feedback is given real-time. A world full of possibilities where the academic and the student are truly interactive. New innovation teaching pedagogies and techniques is created which should help improve student experience recruitment in the long run.
