AbstractThis paper provides a reflective overview of the eight papers collected in this special issue of Educational, Technology and Society that is based on ICALT-2003. We provide a very brief description of the conference and then discuss the eight papers in the context of a focus on learning and a focus on systems. In the conclusion, we offer our thoughts on the notion of borderless research and development, the inseparability of the different aspects of learning and instruction, and likely trends and innovations.

An Interactive Web-based Learning System for Assisting Machining Technology EducationMin Jou; Chi-Chia Liu (kassel university press GmbH, 2008-05-01)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;&#13; (1).Propose the teaching strategies for the students to learning machining processing planning through web-based learning system.&#13; (2).Establish on-line teaching material for the computer-aided manufacturing courses including CNC coding method, CNC simulation.&#13; (3).Develop the virtual machining laboratory to bring the machining practical training to web-based learning system.&#13; (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.

Developing Tele-Operated Laboratories for Manufacturing Engineering Education. Platform for E-Learning and Telemetric Experimentation (PeTEX)A. Erman Tekkaya; Johannes Wildt; Mihai Nicolescu; Ernesto LoValvo; Livan Fratini; Matthias Heiner; Gianluca Buffa; Per Johannssen; Roberto Licari; Christian Pleul né: Burkhardt; et al. (Kassel University Press, 2010-09-01)The aim of the PeTEX-project is to establish an e-Learning platform for the development, implementation, and delivery of educational training programs in the field of manufacturing engineering. The PeTEX team designs both: a technical platform for eLearning based on “Moodle” including distributed tele-operated experimentation facilities, and didactic and socio-technical requirements for a successful online learning community. User interfaces are deployed for remote access to instruments, data analysis and multiplexed data access via network protocols. Hence, the platform provides complex tools in order to perform various activities to support the educational process, from telemetric experimentation to virtual project groups for an entire community to the purpose of domain specific learning. This paper describes important steps of interdisciplinary participatory design and development of a remote lab-prototype in the field of manufacturing engineering.
