IRVINE, CA, Oct 26, 2016 – EON Reality Inc., the world leader in Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer for industry, education, and edutainment, together with Oral Roberts University (ORU), was awarded the 2016 EDUVENTURES Innovation of the Year Award. This prestigious award was given to ORU and its strategic technology partners who have demonstrated creative use of technology to enhance student success at colleges and universities.
Since 2015, EON Reality assisted Oral Roberts University in utilizing new technological developments to bring ORU’s whole person education to the world. The net result of this partnership led to ORU developing and trademarking ORU Geovision technologies, a technical framework that empowers global distribution of ORU’s award winning whole person education.
As part of this partnership, EON Reality has provided ORU with a unique campus-wide enterprise approach to augmented and virtual reality (AVR) and their students will have access to EON Reality’s library of 8,000 learning objects. The EON Platform can be used across an entire ecosystem of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality devices such as: smart phones, LCD displays, 3D Displays, VR Glasses, Icatcher theater screens, and a full immersion Icube.
Michael Mathews, overall designer of ORU’s Geovision technologies and ORU’s CIO, states ‘Without EON Reality’s enterprise approach to augmented and virtual reality it is clear we would have taken three times as long to accomplish this initiative. Their insights, leadership, and corporate team of experts have leaped ORU into an elite category of Augmented and Virtual Reality. Without EON Reality, the entire breadth and depth of our innovation technologies would not integrated into the education system and have the global touch into all the world. This prestigious award is evident that we have picked winning partners like EON Reality.”
