BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WMC) - Northeast Mississippi Community College received one of its highest grants from EON Reality.
A $15.9 million grant will bring virtual reality to Northeast Mississippi CC.
The college plans to digitally transform every classroom by incorporating some form of virtual reality in the class.
“Integrating augmented reality, virtual reality and mixed reality into the normal instructional process will create a tremendous advantage for our students,” said Northeast president Dr. Ricky G. Ford.
The XR platform holds nearly 120,000 assets and covers topics from architecture to engineering to lab sciences, advanced mathematics, and fine arts like studio design and photography.
