The partnership includes a rollout of premium EON Reality academic solutions for students and faculty at Universiti Teknologi MARA.
IRVINE, CA, December 19, 2022 – EON Reality, Inc. (“EON Reality”), a global leader in Virtual and Augmented Reality (“XR”) industry and education solutions powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), has announced a new deal with Malaysian higher education institution Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). The partnership provides students and faculty with access to EON Reality’s XR tools.
UiTM is the latest school with access to EON Reality’s industry-defining AI-powered XR solutions. Since its founding as the RIDA Training Centre in November 1956, Universiti Teknologi MARA has used its reach to train and educate the next generation of Malaysia’s population in its most rural areas. With over 170,000 students spread across its 35 campuses (one primary campus and 34 satellite campuses), UiTM offers a massive variety of academic and industry-based programs to its varied student body, many of which will benefit from the new AI-powered XR adoption from EON Reality.
EON Reality’s solutions will provide Universiti Teknologi MARA students and faculty with the groundbreaking Augmented and Virtual Reality tools they need to bring their education to the next level. Combined with the life-changing power of AI, these tools and products will provide professors and students with the ability to design highly engaging, interactive educational experiences with the option to assess knowledge and ability on the same platform. Dedicated to making them accessible for everyone, the XR solutions are designed to be used by XR novices and veterans alike — meaning no coding or advanced technological knowledge are necessary. Educators can design coursework and distribute to their audience for use on their smartphones, laptops or publicly available headsets (or even have the students design experiences as part of their lesson plan.
EON Reality’s solutions and the lifelike models and environments therein allow new possibilities for faculty and students studying virtually any subject. With these products, instructors are able to provide students with the cutting-edge, hands-on experiences that other education tools aren’t able to offer. With EON Reality’s solutions, UiTM students will gain the knowledge of their areas of study necessary to innovate, revolutionize and change the world for the better.
“I’m very excited about our partnership with UiTM because it represents the kind of assistance we can provide to users in a more rural setting,” says Dan Lejerskar, Founder, Chairman and CEO of EON Reality. “By digitizing everything into XR, location and setting no longer has a serious impact on a student’s education. Someone living in rural Malaysia will have access to the same AI-powered XR content as those studying at a major university in New York City..”
As a result of the culmination of years of work with global enterprises and world-class academic institutions, EON Reality’s solutions are the primary products and content delivery vehicles for AI-powered XR education and industry solutions. EON Reality’s partnership with Universiti Teknologi MARA will provide students and faculty with access to these solutions so that they may provide immersive experiences that will push education forward.
