The partners have purchased the audiovisual equipment they require for providing distance lab training in both directions and video conference between the partners and students.
A web based resource pooling of teaching material and file labelling system have been developed. Each partner have uploaded their best video and animation clips, but also teaching videos – all freely accessible for all partners in the teaching network. The system is prepared for use outside the partner consortium and the upload of files will continue after the project ends.
The Adobe Connect pro web conference system was chosen to be the project CyberCafé solution. The program fulfils the demands of easiness and the nearly non existent problems with firewalls that were a big problem with other solutions tested. Several project meetings, lectures and presentations have been performed with the platform and it has been working exceptional well. The CyberCafé solution has also been tested with very good results during a 2 week period when Alexander Kaplan visited Universities and factories in Japan and China. During the travel that was related to manufacturing engineering Alexander had the opportunity to present the ProCyco project. There were high interest in the exchange of information between Europe and these countries in the way that was done in the ProCyCo project.
Each partner has developed a demo lecture and two of them have already been used in an undergraduate course “T0018T Laser Materials Processing” at Luleå University of Technology through the CyberCafé solution. Alexander held a lecture in “Laser Theory and Optics” with interactive tools and the lecture were also broadcasted to students in Cambridge, Stuttgart and Paris. Bill O´Neill held a lecture regarding “High Efficiency Gas-Assisted Cutting (HEGAC) using optimised next generation fibre lasers” and it was broadcasted to the lecture studio in Luleå and the other partner studios. Staff members, PhD students, undergraduate students and even people from industry were attending the presentations.
The CyberCafé has also been used to present the latest research in laser processing by an open presentation to all partners made by Peter Berger with the title “Controlling the weld seem by magnetically devices”. These activities by presenting research information that can be used in teaching between the partners have been so successful that it will continue after the project ends.
