The collaboration with multiple partners brings an EON-XR rollout to CEPRES International University.
IRVINE, CA, December 15, 2021 – EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces a new partnership with Liberia’s CEPRES International University and the International Academic and Management Association (based in Haryana, India) in order to bring EON-XR solutions to CEPRES’ students in Liberia.
The new partnership is one of many new expansions launched after EON Reality’s recent push to gain a bigger presence within the Indian market. It also marks the California-based company’s first movement into Liberia and helps to secure EON-XR and the knowledge metaverse as available solutions within West Africa.
“We are very excited to partner with both CEPRES International University as well as the International Academic and Management Association for this new opportunity,” EON Reality Chairman Dan Lejerskar said. “Working with both of these great institutions is an incredible way for us to be able to bring EON-XR and our other solutions to new users in an area of the world that needs it. I deeply look forward to seeing how this partnership with both entities grows over time.”
The new partnership will allow for more than 5,000 CEPRES International University students and 750 teachers and enterprise users to gain access to EON-XR, as well as equipment and specialized software from EON Reality. These solutions will provide a new depth of opportunity for students and teachers to incorporate XR into their daily education routine, while also learning more about developing and creating XR content as a part of the rapidly growing industry. This will also allow CEPRES International University to digitize their surroundings, convert their existing projects, and launch new case studies to further XR research and development from an academic perspective.
“There is no life in the absence of technology in this new world,” said Dr. Mogana Flomo of CEPRES International University. “I am proud to be a part of a generation that avails itself to new education and global development ideas.”
This partnership is the first of its kind in the higher education space in Liberia, and CEPRES International University believes it is the beginning of the road leading to the advancement of cutting-edge technology in Liberia and will pave the way for more innovations and discoveries in higher education both locally and internally.
“This collaboration, while being a game-changer in the field of education, holds even greater significance in the current times when, owing to the pandemic, there is a paradigm shift towards online education even with the traditional institutions,” said Prof. Dr. Bikash Sharma, President of the International Academic and Management Association. “This collaboration will help both the student community as well as the institutions, enabling remote transfer of knowledge and skills using the EON-XR proprietary Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality platform and XR library.”
