IRVINE, CA, December 20, 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 partnership with Konkuk University in Seoul, South Korea. The deal provides XR solutions to the institution’s rich student body of over 30,000 students around the world.
Founded in 1946, Konkuk University has endured through uncertain, tumultuous times by focusing on its mission to change the country and the world through the power of education. The history of the nationally regarded institution of higher education embodies its founding philosophy: nation-building through education. As Korea evolved, so did the university. The school now boasts a vibrant, sharp student body that spans two campuses and includes a rich, diverse community of international students. Konkuk University’s devotion to excellence and innovation in education led them to this new partnership with EON Reality.
Access to EON Reality’s XR solutions will provide Konkuk University’s community of instructors and learners with the tools necessary to experience learning in a whole new way. Powered by a groundbreaking level of AI, these tools and products will provide professors with the ability to design highly engaging, interactive educational experiences with the option to assess knowledge and ability without any additional programs. Similarly, students and professors alike will have no barriers to accessing or creating with these tools. EON Reality’s solutions don’t require coding or advanced technological knowledge and can be distributed to a wide audience on a wide variety of devices, ranging from smartphones and laptops to VR and AR headsets.
EON Reality’s solutions and their use of immersive and interactive models and environments allow new possibilities for classes on subjects of nearly any subject — from hard sciences to graphic design, electrical engineering to aviation and everything in between. With these products, instructors are able to provide students with the cutting-edge, hands-on experiences that many traditional educational tools aren’t able to offer. With EON Reality’s solutions, Konkuk University is able to provide its students, researchers, and educators with the necessary tools to push education to the next level.
