IBT Education and Technology Group and EON Reality Inc., the world leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge transfer for industry and education, today announced a partnership aimed at enhancing education and skills training for learners in Ontario and across Canada.
The major focus of the IBT and EON Reality partnership will be on developing opportunities with all sectors of the economy who have a vested interest in education and skills training. This includes government, educational institutions, businesses, labour and industry.
Whether in the classroom or on the shop floor, the utilization of EON Reality’s enhanced XR technology is the next step in improving learning outcomes and learner satisfaction.
The IBT Education and Technology Group is EON Reality’s preferred partner in Canada. Since 1999, EON Reality has developed the de-facto standard for Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality-based knowledge transfer software that supports devices from mobile phones to large immersive domes.
“The current pandemic has provided us with a glimpse of how the education and training systems in Ontario and in other provinces can use technology to create exceptional teaching and learning environments for people. But we’ve only scratched the surface of the transformational nature of technology for education and skills training.”Joe ShokourPresident and CEO of the IBT Education and Technology Group
“We’ve taken the first step by delving into the virtual classroom for millions of learners across the country. Now with the help of EON Reality, it’s time to take the next giant step by adapting the use of augmented and virtual reality for education and training solutions to actively engage learners in furthering developing their knowledge and skills.”James RiceVice-President of IBT
Through EON Reality’s cloud-based EON-XR platform, users can develop, run, manage, access, store, host, and distribute applications without the complexity of building and maintaining the infrastructure associated with developing an XR app. Applications developed using EON-XR provide for efficient knowledge transfer utilizing multi-user interaction, AI, cloud computing, and the Internet of things. The platform can be integrated with most LMS software.
“EON-XR helps users to learn, train, and perform better in the classroom or workplace. By merging the modern concept of the “flipped” classroom with immersive XR content, lessons and classroom materials are presented and consumed in the way the brain naturally thinks — bypassing the abstract thinking needed to turn words on a chalkboard or textbook into 3D images. As we face social and economic challenges of a post-pandemic world our ability to learn, educate, train and innovate become even more critical. Our partnership in Canada with IBT is aimed at equipping people with the educational and skills training tools that they need to build a healthy, safe and prosperous future.”Dan LejerskarFounder of EON Reality
