IRVINE, CA, USA, Mar 8, 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 Central University of Technology (CUT) to bring a campus-wide EON-XR rollout to the institution.

As a high-tech university of technology in Bloemfontein, the capital of the Free State Province of South Africa, CUT has long been a proponent of utilizing e-learning and other digital aspects within their education. But during the COVID-19 pandemic, it became apparent to them that they needed to improve their “hands-on” abilities for remote labs and other interactive learning experiences. That’s why they’ve partnered with EON Reality to deliver an EON-XR rollout to their students and faculty.

“Many universities like CUT have discovered over the last year that their digital classrooms and e-learning solutions are much more limited than originally believed. While traditional e-learning may be acceptable for replacing basic lectures and textbooks, adding the interactive element that only EON-XR can provide elevates the academic experience to a new level. The human mind learns much more efficiently from performing an action rather than reading, listening, or watching, so we are happy to provide that improvement to our partners at CUT.” Dan Lejerskar, Founder of EON Reality.

Given CUT’s experience with technology and remote learning, they’re an obvious choice to become EON Reality’s latest partner in the region. While the initial partnership will focus on the EON-XR rollout for students and faculty at CUT’s Bloemfontein campus, the hope is for EON Reality’s presence in the area to expand the XR solutions beyond the campus walls and to both educators and employers throughout the entire city.

“We are excited to be a part of the EON Reality family and to set up an EON-XR Center in Bloemfontein. EON-XR will benefit our students, staff, and community in many ways. Not only will it provide remote access to education, but it will allow us to broaden our content scope.” Professor David Ngidi, Acting Vice Chancellor and Principal of CUT.
