The project : Autonomous learning for SUNI students
SUNI (the French abbreviation for Sciences Usine Numérique Innovation [Digital Innovation Science Factory]) is a technology platform at ENS Rennes that connects academia and industry.
The mission of this platform is to transfer the knowledge produced by researchers to the local economic fabric in order to produce economic and social value. These transfers are intended to improve the competitiveness of companies and the training of young people in Brittany, as well as facilitating local access to processes of the Industry of the Future.
As an innovative education provider, SUNI has worked with the Synergiz teams to work on the use of digital tools, supported by Augmented Reality, for the subjects of training and the ‘training of tomorrow’.
In this, Synergiz provides HoloLens 2 headsets and the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Guides software solution to equip teachers and students as a vector for its educational content.
In groups of 4 to 6 people, students use their HoloLens 2 headsets for two 10 to 15-minute periods during their four-hour Practical Exercises. The students wearing HoloLens 2 headsets handle the machine in front of them and train themselves on it while following the step-by-step instructions displayed in their field of vision through the HoloLens 2. The scene is also relayed in real time on a TV screen to the other students in the group, thereby enabling them to follow the training independently.
This ergonomic, easy-to-use solution provides the students with an independent learning tool, freeing the teacher from basic and repetitive training tasks.
These digital tools also motivate and attract young talents wanting to specialise in business sectors such as industry or mechanics.
The solution saves time by enabling the self-trained students to work directly on added-value elements and also provides a means for assessing the students and obtaining feedback on the quality of the educational content provided.
