Core Projects & Technologies Ltd, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) for setting up Visualisation Learning Centres at all its centres in India.

The project will create education content using space age technology—Cave Automatic Virtual Environment (CAVE) —developed by scientists of the Centre of Higher Learning (CHL)—at the NASA Stennis Space Centre, Mississippi. The company has exclusive rights for this technology from CHL for the Asia Pacific region.

Deployment of this technology in classrooms will enhance the ability of students to understand complicated topics. It will also enable them to conduct innovative experiments leading to cutting edge Research and Development efforts. The inherent talent and potential in students will be exploited by the use of such advanced technology.

This project of the company with IGNOU will change the landscape of instructional technology and significantly improve the efficacy of learning materials, thus enhancing the quality of education and helping the education system to churn out professionals of the highest calibre, matching international standards.

Core will maintain staff of visualisation scientists trained by CHL to develop a library of Immersive 3D Education Software titles. The company and its partners will cover biology, anatomy, chemistry, molecular science, and physics to training topics for medical, engineering, and vocational students.

IGNOU's role as per the MOU signed will be to set up Visualisation Laboratories at all its centres, suggest educational content and provide subject matter experts in the development of the educational products. It will also develop an education program to cultivate additional visualisation scientists to manage and maintain the Visualisation Labs constructed at each IGNOU campus. It will advice and give recommendations for specifically tailored applications to be developed by Core.

Setting up of one centre will generate a one time license revenue of Rs.3 crore and a recurring revenue of Rs.2.80 crore per year for the Core. Over the next five years it expects to set up 200 centres per year, inclusive of the centres to be set up for IGNOU.
