Vocational education is to train the first-line applied and technical talents, which requires students to have strong hands-on and practical ability. The training of this hands-on ability is not enough by theoretical teaching in the classroom, and only practice teaching can be realized. In early 2020, with continuous online education in various places, many students began to flock to the online teaching platform. What should students and teachers do for training sessions that require regular and fixed locations, supported by a training environment, hardware, and professional teachers? The "Practical Training Master" team of Zhejiang Institute of Mechanical & Electrical Engineering solved the urgent needs of vocational education teachers.
Jiang Hao, Ge Wenbin, Xu Zhihui, Jiang Dingjie, and other six students from the College of Automation of Zhejiang Institute of Mechanical & Electrical Engineering, found the limitations of traditional practical teaching. Traditional practice teaching is tedious and cannot be operated remotely. The content of the training materials is single and one-sided, and the publication cycle is long. The actual training assessment data is easy to plagiarize, and the process cannot be judged. The feedback mechanism of the training process is not timely, and the content cannot be adjusted in real-time for one-to-one guidance. The training room has low management efficiency, high cost, and high-quality equipment is challenging to share. To solve the dilemma of traditional practical teaching and realize that "students learn anytime and anywhere, and teachers have no one to teach at any time", a team of "Practical Training Masters" came into being.

"The new coronavirus has kept students at home for a long time, and most of the students' learning is carried out online. The theoretical courses can be conducted directly through live video, but practical training has become a problem. Can students be at home? Can it be practiced? This idea has always been there. It just happened to take the opportunity of "suspending classes and non-stop learning" to strike out the brand of "Practical Training Master." The team founder Jiang Hao said.
The "Practical Training Master" team developed the Master Training System through market research. The Master Training System is a typical application system of "Internet + Teaching". In 2019, six secondary vocational schools, including Hangzhou city Xiaoshan District first medium occupation school, Xiaoshan No.2 Vocational School, Hangzhou Electronic Information Vocational School, Hangzhou Linping Vocational High School, Yuyao Vocational Education Center, Jiashan County Secondary Professional School, tested the Practical Training Master 1.0. The team made adjustments based on trial feedback and completed the 2.0 online test. During the epidemic prevention and control period, the platform was applied to the practical teaching of Class 1801 and Class 1701 of the Zhejiang Institute of Mechanical & Electrical Engineering and achieved good teaching results.
