IRVINE, CA, USA, May 2, 2022 – EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, has added Google Street View to its EON-XR app, bringing an array of exciting and endlessly modifiable 360-degree content to the knowledge metaverse.
Google Street View allows users to create, view, and share images of places from around the world as photo spheres (360° panoramas) and photo paths (a series of connected photos along a street or trail). EON-XR is an Augmented and Virtual Reality app that gives educators the power to create, publish, demonstrate, record, and assess lessons and content all from their smartphone, tablet, or computer. Integrating Google Street View into EON-XR is the next logical step in the continued expansion of EON’s XR technologies.
EON-XR users in countless fields can now employ Google Street View to create unique, multi-faceted, and highly-interactive lessons, tests, and other learning experiences based in and around real-world locations.
For educators and skills professionals, building lessons with this new EON-XR addition is quite simple. Explore the world in Google Street View app, pick your destination, and import the 360 images into the EON-XR app. From there, you can add annotations with close-captioned audio, text, and text to speech in numerous languages using AI. Additionally, those planning lessons or collaborating on learning experiences can add PDF files, JPG images, videos, and links to Internet articles. This will allow educators or students to embed self-created videos or videos from elsewhere online. All of the media will be expandable or playable within EON-XR. With clickable and quick access to the above, as well as charts, lecture notes, and more, the classroom is everywhere and without limits.
Like the rest of EON-XR, the Google Street View feature is intuitive and code-free, designed to encourage both students and instructors to create content for deeper learning and engagement without needing to learn years of coding. The accessible functionality frees users to think deeply and creatively about the knowledge they’re imparting or taking in. While remote education and skill training continue at many institutions and companies, EON-XR creates the possibility of conducting them in immersive and hands-on digital environments. Lessons and training sessions can be completed in AR or VR modes independently or within groups, providing countless opportunities for students, educators, employers, and employees.
