Educational Applications for the Microsoft HoloLens

Bryn Mawr College partnered with Pearson Interactive, to envision, explore and test potential higher education applications for the Microsoft HoloLens. Pearson Education provided the College with a set of these augmented reality devices, and LITS and Pearson staff hosted demonstration events for faculty and staff, science courses, students participating in the Career and Civic Engagegement Center's STEM Intensives, Sudo Hoot, and Bryn Mawr Engineers and Makers. We are also jointly sponsored winter break and summer internships for undergraduates, where students got first-hand experience with developing and testing applications for a 3D, augmented reality environment. In the process, interns developed design thinking, project management, and collaborative communication skills, and gained experience working as part of a diverse development team distributed across continents.
