Project information

Teaching in the field of "microtechnologies" has the challenge of efficiently presenting and teaching complex technologies and microsystems. In addition to multimedia material for lectures, more and more intensive practical courses are required for an efficient education. This is where the project starts with the goal to create virtual realities in order to make complex microtechnologies 3D and realistically experienceable. For example, students can virtually slip into the role of a plant supervisor, interactively operate the plant or simply watch, listen and learn. The experience of virtual reality can already be made with their own smartphone and a simple cardboard holder. Virtual reality currently appears advantageous for teaching in several respects and also creates completely new possibilities for "Flipped Classroom" and online course offerings, but also for strengthening Thuringia as a research and business location.
