Victoria University becomes first-ever EON-XR Centre in Uganda

KAMPALA, UGANDA: Uganda’s leading private institution – Victoria University has been granted EON-XR Centre, the first of its kind in Uganda, as the university continues to shake up the education sector with great innovation, developments, and experiential teaching methods.

EON-XR is an Augmented and Virtual Reality app packed with features for conducting remote learning and training in a hands-on, immersive environment. The tool is designed to allow subject matter experts such as educators and trainers to share their knowledge with future generations as seamlessly as possible, which means without forcing them to learn complex coding or development tools.

Victoria University Vice-chancellor – Prof. Dr.Lawrence Muganga while addressing the media shortly after the CEO Forum on Friday revealed that with this new technology, lecturers will be able to create interactive and immersive Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality lessons without needing any coding or advanced technological knowledge. The lessons can then be distributed to their audience of students on common devices ranging from smartphones to laptops to publicly available headsets.

”This is something that we as Victoria University can’t stop celebrating, and Ugandans should surely join us to celebrate this achievement. can you imagine a student now sitting in his swanky room and attending to lectures, viewing desktop displays, and interacting with fellow students just using the magic in the headset?,” noted jubilant Muganga.

EON-XR is preparing millions of students, employees, and citizens for the present and future while both replacing and aiding traditional training and teaching methods in dozens of global universities including Victoria University.

Muganga further explained that setting up the EON-XR centre will require $15millions but was quick to add that no need for Ugandans to worry about where such huge funding will come from saying that they have already received a grant from a couple of organizations globally but mainly EON reality from Singapore to set up the centre.

”We are happy to be the first university approved to host an EON XR Reality Center, which means our students will be able to teleport themselves into a classroom in New York, London, Abuja, or anywhere in the world,” added Muganga.
