The partnership includes EON-XR solutions for University of Lagos students and faculty.
IRVINE, CA, February 4, 2022 – EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces a new partnership with University of Lagos in Nigeria to build the latest knowledge metaverse hub at the institution.
As a public research university launched in 1962, University of Lagos offers a world-class education to over 50,000 students by utilizing cutting-edge technology like EON-XR to push itself to the forefront of universities in Nigeria and beyond. This open-minded and eager mentality makes the institution an appealing destination for international students as well as local ones, and also as an ideal fit for the latest EON-XR delivery and a promising contributor to the knowledge metaverse. Adding access to world-class XR solutions will enable them to bring their classrooms into the future of interactive teaching, regardless of subject, class size, or the variety of other factors that often impact schooling.
“University of Lagos has long been one of the top research institutes in Nigeria, and we are very excited to begin our working relationship with them,” said Dan Lejerskar, Founder of EON Reality. “I believe universities like this will help contribute to making the global academic community — and the knowledge metaverse — a significantly stronger network, and I look forward to seeing how the students and faculty members are able to use EON-XR and our other solutions to improve their daily offerings.”
With the new EON-XR delivery and welcome to the knowledge metaverse, University of Lagos’ educators will be able to offer “hands-on” training to their students without the usual logistical restrictions in many forms of engineering and vocational studies. By utilizing the technology to teach immersive and interactive lessons using lifelike 3D models, they can provide the best possible academic experience for those on their campus as well as those studying remotely.
As EON Reality’s newest partner in the EMEA region, University of Lagos will not only be important users of EON-XR, but also likely contributors to EON Reality’s global network and the knowledge metaverse. In recent months, EON Reality has seen over 80 academic institutions become creators and curators for the growing knowledge metaverse — each creating and sharing experiences based on their own areas of expertise. The long-term hope is that the faculty and students of University of Lagos will provide their own additions once they’ve adapted to the technology.
