IRVINE, CA, USA, Feb 9, 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 Konkuk University in South Korea to bring a campus-wide EON-XR delivery to the institution.

Konkuk University, Seoul, South Korea 

As a private institution with nearly 100 years of history, Konkuk University has shown that it’s willing to merge its extensive past with cutting-edge technology to leapfrog ahead of other schools. This open-minded and eager mentality makes the institution both a leader within South Korea as well 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.

“It is always exciting to work with a new university with as much history and impact as Konkuk University,” said Dan Lejerskar, Founder of EON Reality. “So far, our experience working with Konkuk University has been absolutely wonderful, and I truly believe that they understand the future of XR and the knowledge metaverse. I look forward to seeing our relationship grow in Seoul and beyond in the coming years.”

With the new EON-XR delivery and welcome to the knowledge metaverse, Konkuk University’s 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 latest partner in the APAC region, Konkuk University 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 t faculty and students of Konkuk University will provide their own additions once they’ve adapted to the technology.
