Eagerly anticipated and long awaited, EON Reality Inc. — a world leader in Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer for industry and education — and Lehman College of the City University of New York (CUNY) — have just announced the official opening of Lehman College’s new Virtual Training Academy and Development Lab.
The opening ceremony was held Wednesday at CUNY on the Concourse, 2501 Grand Concourse.
We’re told that the new Academy and Lab will focus on training students to become AR and VR developers and for developing new AR and VR knowledge transfer applications.
These efforts will directly benefit Lehman’s students as the focus of the Academy will be on core areas of interest for Lehman College. Students from the Academy will also leverage EON Reality’s AVR Platform developing content for the Virtual Trainer, AR Knowledge Injection, and EON Creator AVR.
“We’re honored to partner with Lehman College to establish an AR and VR training and development center,” said Dan Lejerskar, Chairman of EON Reality. “By bringing our experience in development and training together with Lehman College’s subject matter expertise in continuing education, we hope that together we can help prepare students, new and old, for their dream careers. While initially focused on the needs of Lehman College’s students, we intend for the applications developed here to help students in the CUNY system and in the greater region.”
