Mohammed Wubshet Yimer | Qi Houjun | Qing Liang


Abstract: This study investigated the degree of the readiness of teachers and students towards the implementation of the NC Machining Teach cloud platform, and introducing the NC machining teaching cloud platform that integrate theory and practice in Technical and Vocational Training institutes in Ethiopia. The questionnaire was online administered to 57 teachers and 99 undergraduate students from the Ethiopian Technical and Vocational training institutes, and two polytechnic college of Ethiopia. Thus, the researchers use quantitative method. The researcher used descriptive statistics, t - test, and correlation to analyze the data. The study revealed that teaches and student?s readiness towards the implementation NC machining teaching cloud platform for NC machine course was high, but more efforts should be made to overcome some hindrances related to infrastructure and lack of tools. The results also showed that there was difference in the degree of readiness between teachers and students towards applying NC machining teaching cloud platform. Furthermore, the results indicated that there was statistically significant difference based on teachers and students in applying NC machining teaching cloud platform. The researcher recommended that there should be more support from the school management in providing the teachers and students with sufficient tools that assist the adoption of NC machining teaching cloud platform. In addition, a strong legal policy should be established to support the mechanisms of adopting NC machining teaching cloud platform in Ethiopia Technical and Vocational training institutes. Upgrading computers in the institutes is very important to meet the increasing needs for speed and efficiency in adopting NC machining teaching cloud platform. The study also introduced the NC machining teaching cloud platform.
