Augmented Reality Allows Students to See Beyond the Walls

New Pilot Program Launches this Weekend at Career Discovery Day

Instead of thumbing through college catalogues or spending hours in front of a desktop, imagine simply pointing a wireless mobile device to watch live streams from classes, student testimonials and information on degrees, costs, career opportunities and much more. The information can be sent to nearly anyone anywhere. The new technology is designed to help make the process of researching higher learning a lot faster and much more thorough.

ECPI Ware is an integrated technology assembled by Gerry White, ECPI University’s Associate Dean, Academic Technology, Department Head of Arts & Sciences and a licensed Apple developer. ECPI Ware will be unveiled and piloted at Career Discovery Day from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday, April 20 at ECPI University in Virginia Beach.
