Demirdogen, R. Esra
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Educational Technology (IETC) Conference (7th, Nicosia, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, May 3-5, 2007)
This paper is about a study carried out at a chemical production facility in Izmir, Turkey during 2005/6 using CNC Learning environment and Kolb cycle. The system has been tested with 12 chemists working in this factory. The training course was carried on in a web-based environment and also routine meetings with the instructors were held. The target was to increase competency and compatibility to new technological advances through creating a continuous learning and experimenting environment for all faculty members and especially for adults. It was observed that this method of learning and training was successful in enabling individuals at any age to become informed, capable and creative enough to cope with the demands of new economy and era. Hence, it can be concluded that using an CNC environment for LLL with a collaborative tool advances the performance and efficiency. (Contains 1 table.)
