Abstract

Rapid development of modern machinery and its increasing complexity make high demands to the quality of training of its users. Among the variety of kinds, the important one is vehicles, both civil and military. In the teaching of associated subjects, there is an accepted hierarchy of teaching aids that includes common visual aids (posters, videos, scale models etc.) on the first stage, followed by simulators ranging in complexity, and finishing at real vehicles. It allows achieving some balance between cost and efficiency of training by partial replacement of more expensive and elaborated aids with the less expensive ones. However, the analysis of teaching experience in the Institute reveals that this balance is still suboptimal: the quality and abundance of common aids may be increased, and the simulators may be used more effective. This fact raises the problem of extending the range and quality of available teaching aids for vehicle-related subjects, which is the aim of the work. Benefiting from the modern information and visualization technologies, we present a collection of new teaching aids, which are based on 360° (spherical, 3D) photographic panoramas joined with H5P interactive content framework or virtual reality devices. The nature of the aids, their potential applications, limitations and benefits in comparison to the common aids are discussed, and the practical recommendations about creating and implementing the aids are given. The proposed aids are shown to be cost-effective and proven to increase efficiency of training, according to the results of a teaching experiment. For the implementation, a tight collaboration between the Institute and an IT company was established. The authors conclude that the proposed aids may significantly improve the cost-efficiency balance of teaching technology subjects.
