The partnership will begin with new EON-XR solutions for the Palestinian University.
EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces a new partnership with An-Najah National University to bring campus-wide EON-XR solutions to the institution.
As the largest university in Palestine, An-Najah National University’s century-long history is rife with its willingness to change and adapt to modern times and technology. The school has long been a proponent of utilizing the best of both traditional and unconventional pedagogical methods, and having access to world-class XR solutions will enable them to bring their classrooms into the future of interactive teaching.
“A university with as much history as An-Najah National University is always a privilege to work with, because it shows that their passion for education goes far beyond what we see in the modern classroom. By providing them with a variety of EON-XR solutions, we’ll be able to ensure that An-Najah National University remains one of the top schools in Palestine and beyond for years and decades to come. I believe that this is only the beginning of a wonderful partnership with An-Najah National University.”Dan LejerskarFounder of EON Reality
Through EON-XR, An-Najah National University’s educators will be able to offer “hands-on” training to their students regardless of location or subject matter. By closing the gap in quality between in-person labs and distance learning via XR solutions, An-Najah National University can provide the best possible academic experience for those on their Nablus campus as well as those studying remotely.
As EON Reality’s first partner in Palestine, An-Najah National University offers a variety of new possibilities to the XR veterans as well. While the initial partnership will focus on providing EON-XR solutions for students and faculty, the hope is for EON Reality’s presence in the area to expand the desire for the technology beyond the campus walls and to both educators and employers throughout the entire region.
“An-Najah National University — a regional leader and top-ranked university — recognizes the tremendous transformative power that technology has on education and knowledge transfer. The recent pandemic has made it even more clear that universities have to move beyond traditional teaching and learning methods and look forward to innovative, next-generation ones. Our partnership with EON Reality comes in this context; to provide cutting-edge augmented and virtual reality technology to our students and faculty — and eventually to the local community — to create exceptional teaching and learning environment. We believe that such a unique environment will open more opportunities to our students and increase their competitiveness, positioning them as leaders in a world that is becoming relentlessly digital.”Prof. Maher NatshehPresident of An-Najah National University
