This research provides lecturers with a student’s perspective of the use of virtual technology (welding) to build welding skills. Do learners consider Virtual Welding technology beneficial to the development of practical welding skills? Does the ability to receive peer feedback during Virtual Reality practice sessions contribute to building a deeper understanding of the more technical aspects of welding technology?
