A software developer has released its teachWELD Welding Simulator. The company has created a hands-on simulator for practicing welding along with various techniques.
The simulator includes a curriculum, hardware (a welding rig), and software. Its online, game-like interface gives students a hands-on learning experience in basic welding form and proper technique within a safe virtual environment. Student learning is evaluated through diagnostic and welding integrity assessments for each exercise. This lets instructors manage the classroom more efficiently and gives students one-on-one instructor time.
“The teachWELD Welding Simulator offers many different avenues that can be used in welding education,” says Greg Shipp, Coordinator of Career and Technical Education at Conroe Independent School District in Conroe, Texas.
The simulation is being launched into the market place at a time when the nation is starting to see a shortage of welders, says the company. The program gives students the opportunity to explore this career path, while at the same time reducing the use of costly welding materials.
