Last year, Lifeliqe announced its partnership with HTC Vive to become their strategic partner in the field of educational content. They are now developing high quality room-scale educational experiences on the HTC Vive. Yesterday, Lifeliqe announced that they have started piloting mixed reality educational content for Microsoft HoloLens in grade 6-12 classrooms. Students and teachers from Renton Prep in Seattle, WA and Castro Valley Unified College, CA are now trying out mixed reality educational content on HoloLens during a Science lesson.
The students used Lifeliqe on HoloLens in lessons on circulatory system and electronegativity. “I thought it was really realistic and it was really fun to experience,” said Emmy, 8th-grade student from Renton Prep.
Mixed reality offers completely unique means to deliver educational content and we are excited to take another step forward in providing immersive learning experiences. The excitement we witnessed during the pilot shows us the great potential mixed reality has in sparking lightbulb moments,” said Ondrej Homola, Lifeliqe CEO.
“We are thrilled to work with Lifeliqe to pilot mixed reality curriculum in secondary education,” said Lorraine Bardeen, General Manager of Microsoft HoloLens and Windows Experiences. “3D and mixed reality has amazing potential to improve learning comprehension, and we are excited to explore its possibilities in the classroom.”
Lifeliqe is planning to expand this pilot program to a number of schools in coming weeks.
