Asimopoulos, Nikolaos D.; Kyriakos, Nathanail; Mpatzakis, Vlasios – International Journal on E-Learning, 2007
Technical education is, by definition, a field that requires hands-on practice and experience by the student. When it comes to distant learning, technical education suffers from lack of such practical study, given the fact that e-learning is based on theoretical material being provided remotely to the student. This article presents the idea of…

Millson, David; Jerie, Branko – Technology Teacher, 2005
Motivating students to master the basics in any field is a demanding task. In technical education, while the direct benefit--almost certain, well-paying employment--is obvious, the challenge is to keep students' interest high. Absent that, the technical workforce lacks skilled replenishment, and the possibility of being overtaken by competition…
