MiReBooks - Mixed Reality Handbooks for Mining Education

The education project MiReBooks, funded by the EIT RawMaterials initiates a series of Virtual & Augmented Reality based (= Mixed Reality, MR) interactive mining handbooks as a new digital standard for higher education across Europe.

MiReBooks is a new digital learning experience. By taking traditional paper based education material and enriching it with virtual and augmented reality based experiences (Mixed Reality), teachers can now convey and students now experience phenomena in the classroom that are usually not easily accessible in the real world. Complex issues of mining are no longer a challenging barrier for learning progress and students complete their studies with a more thorough comprehension of their discipline.

The new method meets the learning habits of present and future generations of students who will enter the job market as digital natives and highly influence the way mining skills are applied.
