IRVINE, Calif., September 28, 2009 – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, had the opportunity to present and provide technology demonstrations of interactive Simulation-Based Learning (SBL) and interactive 3D (i3D) technology applications for multiple educational experiences at a Lansing Community College (LCC) Open House for their new 3D Theatre and Production Lab on September 17, 2009. Those presenting 3D visualization technology solutions were: Mats Johansson, CEO, and Marly Bergerud, VP Education Development, both of EON Reality and Jamie Justice, Director, Innovation and Visualized Learning, of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS).
« At Lansing Community College i3D solutions will be initially incorporated, « said Judith Berry, Dean, Business, Media, and Information Technologies Division, « in the Art, Design, and Multimedia Programs where students will work as artists, modelers, animators, actors, and developers of course material to develop highly interactive three-dimensional multimedia courseware libraries to be used throughout media, science, healthcare, mathematics, and technical careers across campus. » The new digital material will be designed for inclusion in existing and new programs for classrooms for all disciplines, for e-Learning and professional improvement, as well as to enhance marketing capabilities for Lansing Community College. « Further, » said Bergerud, « the implementation of these 3D technology solutions will also be providing Michigan business and industry a workforce with an enhanced skill set for the creation of visualization and simulation-based applications – content creation that is in high demand globally. »
« The examples of i3D in healthcare, automotive industry, construction, law enforcement and teaching are limitless, » said LCC President Brent Knight. « This cutting edge i3D learning experience will help prepare LCC students to pursue careers in informational design or as 3D simulation modeling technicians. »
Judith Berry indicated, « The long-term goal of the college is to be a Digital Innovation Center for the Arts, Science and Technology (DiCAST) and to collaborate with other educational institutions around the country to design highly-interactive media to be used for training purposes in a variety of programs and industries with a goal of creating a self-sustaining learning environment. »
