Marine engineers’ training: Educational assessment for an engine room simulator

Qualitative upgrading of the educational process at university level marine education depends largely on the instructive value of the trainers’ educational software. Marine education software has developed out of a certain initial implementation in an equivalent manner to which the programs of practice and training have been applied in cases of simulations and programming environments. In most cases, educational software categories have developed without taking into consideration any special pedagogical theory.The present project concerns the educational evaluation of a Norcontrol PPT2000 engine room simulator, in terms of the trainees’ pedagogical treatment by the simulator itself. Evaluation results show the pedagogical suitability of the educational system and the important potentialities it offers, as well as the scopes of its pedagogical development. The above data are very important for the improvement of the offered education and development of the trainee’s abilities and skills, with the ultimate purpose of creating more and more educated marine engineers in the Greek merchant fleet.
