How can Barco technology empower education? Find out how at the Digital Education Show
Posted on Wednesday, September 16, 2015


And there is more trade show news from the Middle East … Over 1,500 professionals from the education sector are in Dubai, right now, to attend the 2015 Digital Education Show in the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Center. Given that this is the biggest conference in the region on how technology can power education, it’s only logical that Barco is there too. We’ll present our virtual reality (VR) solutions at the Intertech booth and we’re honored that our solutions will feature prominently in a presentation by Mohammed Hamami from Qatar University, today, on 16 September.

   

Paving the way for VR
Unsure about the use of VR in education? Then the presentation by Hamami is a must-attend. Over the past few years, Hamami has worked on exciting projects in academic institutions and private companies to establish a new way of teaching and working using VR technology. Since the start of this year, he’s been head of the VR Section at Qatar University, which just recently opened an impressive VR lab featuring a Barco CAVE. Confident as he is about the benefits of VR, Hamami is dedicated to spreading the use of VR around the Middle East and Africa Region.

So versatile
In his presentation, Mohammed Hamami will explain how he aims to bridge the gap between virtual reality and real life by bringing the experience into classrooms and the workplace. “While VR technology has traditionally been used as a marketing or presentation gimmick, it can also be used for more practical matters,” Hamami said in a recent interview about the new CAVE (Doha news). “The thing about VR is that it’s so versatile. It can be adapted to any use in diverse fields like engineering, architecture, biomechanics, mathematics and education, and that’s just the beginning.” Don’t miss this speaking slot if you want to hear how Hamami and his team use the brand-new Barco CAVE to gain new insights and inspire and motivate their students ...

Barco CAVE at work
To see Barco’s visualization technology at work, the Intertech booth at the Digital Education Show (Hall 1, booth D20) is the place to be. The booth features an example of a Barco CAVE featuring 4x2 OLS cubes.
