EON Reality, a global leader in Virtual and Augmented Reality (“XR”) and Knowledge Metaverse industry and education solutions, has announced a new partnership with Nunez Community College which also includes EON Reality’s latest offering, the EON Metaverse Builder.
Nunez is the latest educational organization with access to EON Reality’s industry-defining XR training solutions. EON-XR solutions will enable Nunez instructors to increase the speed of workforce training, reduce infrastructure costs and decrease the probability of high-consequence events in dangerous industries through simulation-based training.
EON Reality’s solutions and the lifelike models and environments therein allow Nunez and industry partners to offer customizable “hands-on” training to students or employees without the inherent logistical restrictions of working with materials that could be unsafe to them or the environment.
With EON Reality’s solutions, Nunez will be able to better serve industries in every parish where they operate while protecting their employees.
"As we look back over 30 years of Nunez history during our college's anniversary this year, it's fitting to remember that our mission is squarely rooted in training students for the jobs of today and tomorrow," said Nunez Chancellor Dr. Tina Tinney. "Technology like EON Reality's VR and AR are the newest tools available to educators and students. Innovation is one of our core values at Nunez, so stepping into the virtual world is both necessary and proper as we live up to those values."
“Like EON Reality, Nunez Community College believes an environment that promotes open knowledge sharing is critical to the success of an organization and the world. We’re elated to help Nunez and its industry partners achieve the college's aim of reducing inequalities and unemployment in Southeast Louisiana via access to high-quality and relevant skills development and training opportunities,” said Dan Lejerskar, Founder, Chairman and CEO of EON Reality.
“Eon XR brings the world to our students. It allows students the ability to learn using VR and AR technology, allowing students to experience learning in a realistic 3D environment,” said Julie Rexford, Director of Nunez’s STEAM Division, which focuses on workforce initiatives and community engagement. “It allows students to visit locations around the world without leaving school or home. Students can view and manipulate 3D models for a more in-depth understanding of the content they are studying."
As a result of the culmination of years of work with global enterprises and world-class academic institutions, EON-XR is the primary product and content delivery vehicle for XR education and industry solutions in the knowledge metaverse.
Nunez's partner industries will train their employees utilizing EON-XR, EON Metaverse Builder and EON Reality’s other offerings while providing feedback on the best uses of the solution for companies in related fields.
