Virtualized learning is the next evolutionary leap in training and education
IRVINE, Calif., December 1, 2010 – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, today announced an extended Virtual Learning Program, a program aiming to provide educational virtual reality niche solutions to the emerging 3D volume market. To meet the growing demand for virtual learning content, academic institutions, companies and governments are now taking the next step to implement and take advantage of this new virtual reality technology.
With the launch of the extended Virtual Learning Program platform, EON Reality aims to take on the role as a global facilitator of interactive 3D virtual learning and in collaboration with content creators assist the volume market development based on EON’s technology platform.
Earlier this year EON Reality initiated a Virtual Learning Program membership network consisting of academic institutions, companies and governments. The initiative built on the successes of the Interactive Digital Consortium, a technology partnership program, initiated by EON Reality in 2006 and dedicated to the development of interactive 3D Virtual Reality standards and solutions.
“Our expectation for rapid growth and accomplishment within the virtual learning market is substantiated by our relationships with leading technology providers and collaborations with existing educational institutions,” said Dan Lejerskar, Chairman at EON Reality. “Educational institutions are increasingly recognizing that traditional teaching methods are no longer sufficient to support the goals of nations or the needs of students. Students and educational systems must be given the same virtualization, communication, and collaboration technologies in order to ensure that graduates are proficient in collaborating nationally and globally”.
In collaboration with technical institutions and the Singapore government, EON Reality has already extended collaboration projects for the purpose of providing education, entertainment and communication to the K through 12 global classroom
According to the developers behind the new virtual learning platform, the EON Reality Singapore team, ‘virtualized learning is the next evolutionary leap in training and education.’ Mr. Sridhar Sunkad, Managing Director, EON Reality, Pte Ltd., believes that 3D virtual learning is the most important knowledge transfer solution of the 21st century. “Imagine a learning experience that combines the realism of a simulator with the ease-of-use of gaming technology. There exists no more effective or efficient way to learn than true 3D immersion in the actual content,” said Mr. Sridhar Sunkad.
