For more than 43 years the Lucas-Nülle company has stood for the development, manufacture and marketing of high-quality, state-of-the-art training systems and education equipment for further and advanced technical, engineering and vocational education. In addition to course offerings covering a wide range of basic theoretical material, project-oriented and didactic training receives special focus.
VOCANTO, our cloud-based learning software for vocational education and training, does the next step into the future of learning. It provides effective learning media for teachers, instructors and trainees at all learning centres. Detailed 3D models facilitate easy understanding of interrelated aspects and complex systems. The cloud allows teachers and instructors to check the learning progress of all trainees – across different learning centres – at any time. This offers tremendous transparency and saves time.
Today, renewable energy technologies are undergoing rapid change. This trend is being compounded by rising expectations in training and education. Lucas-Nülle has developed the appropriate training systems needed to cope with the ever more complex world of training and education.
The solar trainer enables project work to be carried out with industrial components.
The solar trainer permits realistic simulation of the progression of the sun. Emulators make it possible to carry out the experiments in the laboratory without the sun.
The Interactive Lab Assistant Advanced Photovoltaic multimedia course is designed to convey the theoretical information and practical know-how, and performs the PC-supported evaluation of measurement data.
Small wind power plants up to approx. 5kW power are being deployed for decentralised power supplies. These plants generate DC voltage. The effects of wind power and the mechanical design of wind power stations can be emulated down to the last detail using the servo machine test stand and the software WindSim. The corresponding Interactive Lab Assistant Multimedia course imparts knowledge, provides interactive experiment setup support and allows for PC-assisted evaluation of the measurement data.
Technical training manuals are a thing of the past: In the form of VOCANTO, Lucas-Nülle now offers cloud-based learning software with which trainees can learn any time, anywhere on their own smartphones. Initial feedback indicates that VOCANTO is not simply learning, but also gaming for education, yet always within a framework curriculum.
The jury for the eLearning Journal has decided: VOCANTO is the winner in the Cloud Learning category for 2017.
The award was presented at didacta 2017 in Stuttgart. Christoph Müssener, Managing Director of Lucas-Nülle, accepted the award for VOCANTO. “VOCANTO only went online six months ago. We are proud to have received this recognition of our work after such a short period of time.”
The VOCANTO team, too, celebrated the fact that their commitment was rewarded with this highly sought-after award.
