TORONTO, July 12, 2022 — ARHT Media Inc. (“ARHT Media” or “ARHT” or the “Company“) [TSXV:ART], the global leader in the development, production and distribution of high-quality and low-latency hologram and digital content, announces that Carleton University will deploy ARHT Media’s HoloPresence™ technology to design a new medium of distance learning, for remote students in a Northern Community in Yukon, Canada.
The Sprott School of Business at Carleton University, in partnership with ARHT, will assess the effectiveness of ARHT’s live hologram technology to aid in remote post-secondary instruction and community engagement. Sprott faculty and students are already involved in programs in Northern communities, however given the difficulty of travelling to and from the region, the majority of the school’s involvement has been limited to virtual interaction through video conferencing. Now, thanks to CAPSULE, ARHT’s latest 4K hologram display that can display live interactive holograms, students located in this remote Northern community will be able to interact with faculty and students in Ottawa in a more engaging and meaningful manner than they typically have been in the past, potentially improving both the quality of remote instruction and the learning experience of students.
“Our partner Northern communities have identified student engagement as one of the more pressing educational problems they face. School staffing and resources are often stretched, and we are investigating the value-added of this great new technology,” stated Troy Anderson, Instructor at Carleton University, “With ARHT’s live hologram technology, we will assess improvements in engagement and content retention through the use of live holograms. We will also be investigating other promising uses of the technology that might be of benefit to these communities.”
“Access to the best quality education is crucial to the success of individuals, and often when you live in such remote locations it can be a challenge to access post-secondary instruction,” stated ARHT CEO, Larry O’Reilly. “Our live hologram technology will greatly help the Northern community and faculty and students at Carleton interact with each other with a sense of presence and really contribute to education offered to students in remote contexts. This is a great initiative that we hope to see expanded and repeated.”
