The Mississippi-based Interactive Digital Center will continue EON-XR’s growth in the area.
EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces a new Interactive Digital Center for Hinds Community College’s campuses Mississippi.
Rather than focusing on a single location with large-scale hardware, the Interactive Digital Center will bring EON-XR and several XR headsets and other devices to students and faculty on each of Hinds’ six campuses. In addition to providing these world-class solutions to the users, the new Interactive Digital Center also shows the college’s commitment to bringing the best technology available to its students both for software development purposes as well as utilization of it in other fields.
As the largest community college in Mississippi, Hinds boasts over 12,000 students focusing on a variety of subjects. This large and diverse population provides a unique opportunity for EON Reality to reach the next generation of both employees and entrepreneurs across the state. It’s the perfect setup for the blend of academic learning and real-world practical career training that only EON-XR can provide.
“Working with Hinds Community College will give us the chance to reach so many students and teachers who could greatly benefit from EON-XR’s technology. By launching an Interactive Digital Center for them, we’ve committed to delivering our top-of-the-line solutions and possibilities to them. We believe this will open up entirely new subjects to teach as well as new ways to teach existing material.”Dan LejerskarFounder of EON Reality
The Interactive Digital Center will provide new ways for students and instructors to incorporate XR lessons into their daily education routine, while also allowing those interested in software development to learn more about creating XR content. Additionally, another benefit of Hinds’ large reach and influence throughout the state is that the XR solutions will likely reach local businesses through the training and education of the workforce, which will allow companies large and small to increase their own efficiency and production.
Hinds students in all academic and career-tech areas of study will benefit the platform. Students will be able to access more than 10,000 units of academic and career-tech content.
“They will be able to put the goggles on and learn how to work on an engine without having to touch it at all. Then, when they’re actually working with the diesel engines, or driving that truck, or working on an automotive engine, or painting that building, they’ll be more than ready to do it.”Dr. Chad StocksVice President of Workforce and Community Development, Hinds Community College
“We look forward to training to our faculty, through our Center for Teaching and Learning, so we can use these exciting capabilities in all instruction. The possibilities are endless – from geography, to our arts and sciences, to virtual field trips. These are experiences our students have not ever had before and will enhance the traditional classroom experience.”Dr. Keri ColeVice President of Instruction, Academic & Transfer, Hinds Community College
