The partnership will begin an EON-XR rollout at one of Rwanda’s top TVET institutions.
IRVINE, CA, October 14, 2021 – EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces a new partnership with Rwanda Polytechnic to start an EON-XR rollout on its campus in Kigali, Rwanda.
Focused primarily on technical and vocational education and training, Rwanda Polytechnic fits into EON Reality’s mission of creating the knowledge metaverse while upskilling and training the next generation of workers. As the company’s first partner in Rwanda, the school will look to build off of the success it found in transitioning to remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, while also incorporating EON-XR into both e-learning and in-classroom activities.
“Rwanda Polytechnic provides an opportunity for us to improve the entire local economy and workforce of the area from the ground up. By helping to teach and train these students more efficiently, EON Reality is able to ensure that the next generation of employees in numerous industries across Rwanda will be able to perform better and have more productive careers. It is impacts like this that we have always been built around as a company.”Dan LejerskarFounder of EON Reality
Rwanda Polytechnic is EON Reality’s latest stop in its expansion of the knowledge metaverse into the EMEA region. The massive surge in popularity that the COVID-19 pandemic brought to the XR company has allowed the California-based business to assist colleges and universities around the world to improve their XR offerings. For their latest partner, that means an opportunity to give their students a “hands-on” experience even when they’re unable to physically come to the campus due to health restrictions.
