The collaboration will bring the knowledge metaverse to BINUS University students and faculty.
IRVINE, CA, February 25, 2022 – EON Reality, the international leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces a new agreement with Bina Nusantara University (BINUS University) to expand the knowledge metaverse in the Republic of Indonesia.
A computing pioneer in Indonesia and around the globe since the university’s earliest iteration in 1974, BINUS University remains at the forefront of the field nearly 50 years later. Born from a single “Modern Computer Course,” the institution now offers 14 computing degrees, including those in Data Science, Game Application and Technology, and Cyber Security. BINUS University has also expanded its curriculum into other STEM fields, offering multiple programs in Engineering and Finance. With its legacy of technological innovation and entrepreneurship, BINUS is a celebrated addition to EON Reality’s expanding international network. The university will build off of the success EON Reality has already seen in the region while distinguishing themselves as invaluable members of the knowledge metaverse.
“Bina Nusantara University’s computer science legacy in Indonesia has made an international impact for decades. Their use of EON-XR solutions will broaden that impact in all of their academic fields while extending new teaching methods and innovations to every member of EON Reality’s knowledge metaverse,” says EON Reality founder Dan Lejerskar. “One of BINUS University’s noble school missions is to address challenges nationally and abroad. This gives me great hope that they will use EON Reality’s solutions to enhance their already excellent work.”
With the new additions to the knowledge metaverse and EON-XR, BINUS University professors can offer “hands-on” training to their students without the need to be physically present in the classroom. The combination of the institution’s exceptional lessons and the immersive experiences and content will provide many students and faculty a distinct advantage, particularly if education reverts to remote learning in the future.
As EON Reality’s latest partner in its mission to bring the knowledge metaverse worldwide, BINUS University is a prime example of an institution with a computing focus that can create a mutually beneficial relationship with the XR leader. The initial partnership will provide EON-XR solutions for students and faculty to introduce them to the knowledge metaverse. Soon enough, though, experts in every field at BINUS University will become leading industry-specific contributors to the global project — creating and disseminating lessons and experiences centered around medicine and STEM for users regardless of location or background.
