World’s first live holographic university lecture at Imperial College Business School
In November 2018, Imperial became the first university to deliver a lecture via holographic telepresence technology. Three of the five speakers ‘appeared’ in the lecture hall whilst being physically located in New York and Los Angeles. They were able to make eye contact with students, answer questions in a live Q&A panel and respond in real-time to audience reactions. The result was an interactive learning experience, which parallels the ‘real world’ equivalent, whilst offering significant benefits: drawing on a global pool of speakers, maximising academic teaching time whilst travelling, and creating an educational experience perfectly tailored to Generation Z students.
Augmented Baseplate Shoulder Simulation and Patient Specific Planning
This project is part of immersive medical education using VR to simulate the successful placement and checkpoints of using an Augmented Baseplate to reconstruct the glenoid. The aim of this module is to perform immersive virtual surgery on an actual patient to obtain exposure and reconstruct an abnormal glenoid commonly seen in shoulder replacement. The goal of this VR module is to permit deliberate practice and combine cognitive and technical decision making throughout to provide the greatest impact in surgical education.
CleverBooks provides Augmented Reality resources for Primary STEM Education that bring schools subjects to life, empowering students learning in developing 21st-century skills and achieving higher academic results.
The goal of this project is to reimagine STEM Education in every classroom by disrupting the pedagogical approach towards teaching, and setting the standards in the integration of augmented learning in the STEM curriculum.
