Mixed reality in higher education

"EDtech innovation team from Leiden University develops first interactive mixed reality HoloLens application for medical education to investigate anatomy with your own body movements."

A team of experts from the University of Leiden and the Leiden UMC has added a new feature to the Microsoft HoloLens, which enables the medical holograms in the app to move with the human body. This enables a real-time, three-dimensional model for students to learn from, using their own bodies as learning tools. This immersive way of learning through Mixed Reality is a gamechanger in higher education, and has many more possible applications which are still being developed daily.
