Mori Seiki University Introduces Education On Demand

Mori Seiki University has announced the launch of Education On Demand, a new and wholly unique approach to applying e-learning to manufacturing. The decision to make courses available online was the result of overwhelming customer demand since Mori Seiki University was established earlier this year.

Courses in Education On Demand are divided between general manufacturing topics and the operation and mastery of specific Mori Seiki machines. The machine-based courses employ fully functional, 3D digital machines. During training, students interact with these machine models just as they would with real, physical machines. This results in an unparalleled level of immersion, keeping students interested in the courses and improving their retention of the material presented.

To offer the highest levels of flexibility, all courses can be started at a student's specific level of expertise and experience. Individuals also move at their own pace throughout the program, avoiding the traditional classroom dilemma of progressing at too slow or fast of a pace for some students. Additionally, comprehensive tests follow each section of a course and students must score 100% to proceed. This guarantees maximum retention of the information being taught.

"As soon as we opened the doors of Mori Seiki University, we were receiving feedback from customers asking us to develop the means for courses to be available to them," says Rod Jones, Chief Learning Officer at Mori Seiki. "Our courses were already very computer intensive and it was not difficult to adapt them for an online environment. Education On Demand allows machine operators to develop additional expertise on whatever schedule works best for them."

In addition to machine-specific courses, classes are also offered on general manufacturing topics. Some of these include lean manufacturing, metrology, manufacturing math, statistical process control and blueprint reading. A list of all current course offerings can be found at
