Spartanburg Community College instructors can now easily transfer their teaching and experiential knowledge to students via the latest augmented reality/mixed reality and reality-based classroom technologies. The technology has been made available through donations and partnerships from SeeDaten Inc., Ioxp GmbH, Milliken & Co. and SCRA.
In cooperation with their technologies supply partner, Ioxp GmbH of Mannheim, Germany, SeeDaten has made an in-kind donation in excess of $135,000 to install, train and support the leadership and students of Spartanburg Community College, according to a news release. SeeDaten is based at the college's Spark Center SC.
Milliken has invested, via an in-kind donation, to assist the college in “raising the bar for educational excellence and to prepare students for movement into Milliken's modern manufacturing operations,” the release said.
SCRA has invested, with an Industry Demonstration Grant, to help bring cooperation to the launch and to ongoing successes. SeeDaten is a client company in SCRA's SC Launch program.
The goals of the partnership among participating companies are to benefit instructors, students and industries, the release said.
Instructors can prepare consistent and effective course content for students and client companies across the college and have access to the latest technologies.
Students can learn course content consistently, on modern platforms including mobile devices, in an interactive and immersive manner. They also can learn at a pace that meets their individual needs, the release said.
