VR has increasingly integrated into educators' pedagogical approaches, bringing better experiences to teaching. Through student-centered teaching methods, VR brings benefits such as active learning, in-depth learning, and enhanced understanding. Moreover, VR technology can also play an important role in avoiding experimental risks and saving costs on facility construction.


Mr. Huafeng Yang expressed that through this donation, KMAX has the opportunity to play a vital role in the teaching practice and research application of VR technology in education, so that VR practical training and professional application can become a powerful tool to promote digital transformation, and truly realize the goal of empowering education with VR. Furthermore, this will lay a solid foundation for expanding VR function in the Smart Classroom of ICHEI’s partner universities with the support of KMAX.


Ms. Shirley Zheng gave a detailed introduction to KAMX's VR software and hardware products and course resources, and proposed further cooperation in assisting partner universities to carry out skill training, jointly building localized courses, talent cultivation, skill certification, and VR training classroom construction.
