Eastern Iowa Community College, EON Reality’s partner is now opening up its new building, the Scott Community College Urban Campus, which also is EON Reality’s new home for its Interactive Digital Center (IDC) in Davenport, Iowa.
The West (Classroom) Building features EICC’s virtual reality, computer information technology, science, nursing, medical assisting, and emergency medical technician labs. The East building houses our student services and administrative offices, and a brand new coffee shop! Constructed at a cost of roughly $30 million, the overall campus is approximately 70,000 square feet in size.
FREE continuing education classes will be offered throughout the day. Join us and learn about Augmented and Virtual Reality in Room 228 for a 50-minute introduction at 10:00 am or at 1:30 pm. Our new IDC houses a VR Innovation Academy, which teaches the skills needed to be successful in creating AR and VR content and applications for industry and training. The Academy is now recruiting and the next program will start on August 20, 2018.
The center also provides access to state of the art interactive 3D technologies including a new virtual showroom, creating a center of excellence in Davenport. Learn how companies, governments and institutions have used VR and AR to teach more in less time, deal with increasing complexity in the workplace, and advances education from memorization to higher skills such as critical thinking and problem solving. Traditional knowledge transfer methods cannot keep up with the rapid pace of change leaving those displaced by technological change unable to find new employment.
And, of course, there will be music and refreshments.
