IRVINE, Calif., April 26, 2010 – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, today announced the launch of the Virtual Learning Program, a global membership network consisting of academic institutions, companies and government organizations. It has been created with the specific goal to develop the world’s largest online 3D Virtual Learning object, environment and application library.
“Since our company started 12 years ago, our customers have increasingly asked for two things; a user-friendly online multiuser 3D solution focused on knowledge transfer and access to more 3D interactive rich content for education,” said Dan Lejerskar, Chairman, EON Reality. These two demands coincide also with President Obama’s national education “Grand Challenge” of the 21st century identified in his strategy for America Innovation: “Develop an educational software that is as compelling as the best video game and as effective as a personal tutor; online courses that improve the more students use them; and a rich, interactive digital library at the fingertips of every child.“
“After more than 4 years of development, we are pleased to announce that we can finally address these demands by launching EON Coliseum, an online multiuser technology platform where people can communicate and collaborate in 3D using rich media such as 3D worlds, slideshows, videos, avatars, voice, chat and interactive 3D objects, the largest product launch in our 12 year history along with the Virtual Learning Program,” continued Mr. Lejerskar.
The Virtual Learning Program benefits are:
- Free access to EON Icatcher 100(TM), a 3D interactive digital library, a $5000 value
- Free 40-day trial license of EON Coliseum software
- 70% of the revenues from sales of any 3D digital library or Virtual Learning application modules submitted, approved and sold through the network
This program is launched in collaboration with the IDC Consortium and has been made possible thanks to the over 200 academic institutions and 400 Global 1000 customers that have invested in and supported EON Reality’s interactive 3D and virtual reality solutions over the last 12 years.
