UNIVERSITY PRESENTS INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY R&D IN EDUCATION AT ITF

An exhibition titled "Information Technology for All" within the X International IT Forum, being hosted in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia, has seen advanced education technologies developed by Yugra State University researchers, staff and students.


At the University booth, forum attendees are free to test a Prototyped Study Guide "Spring Free Fall Observation: Augmented Reality-featured Physics Practical Class".


"In our practical lesson, we study physical effects emerging with slinky spring's free falling. To study this phenomenon, the students employ an experimental augmented/virtual/mixed reality (AR/VR/MR) technology," said prototype author Prof. Dr. Oleg Yavoruk, YUSU Department of Physics and Technical Disciplines. "Teaching experience using AR/VR/MR technology is recommended for those interested in current physics teaching challenges arising in schools and universities, as well as for students, lecturers, and for self-study purposes".


Moreover, Prof. Yavoruk delivered his report on AR Lecturer Assistant Application Device at a "Digital Tools in Education Environment" round table to have demonstrated the performance of his AR/VR/MR invention and its operational principles.


Along with this project, the university presents yet other R&Ds, such as "Academic Migration", a service searching for opportunities to transfer to state-financed places in higher educational institutions; "Public Utilities Monitoring System" for automated resource consumption data acquisition, storage, transfer and display; "iNaturalist", an amateur and professional new biological species discovery recording platform.


Future scientists and engineers showcase their software, developed in association with students – crew members of the Student Engineering Department "Energetic". This is an AR Engineering Project, an augmented reality-featured PC engineering software titled "Power Efficiency Improvement for Regionally-Isolated Electric and Technical Systems Based on Equipment Optimization". 


And a "Smart House" exhibition stand introduces to the audience its living space comfort and security enhancement features based on decentralized radio modules automation process.


The YUSU students demonstrate how to deal with QR-codes and read out information encrypted in these codes, as they stream the university booth activities live on VKontakte social network available at https://vk.com/sdb_energetik.


To top it all, Russian Minister of Digital Development, Telecom and Mass Communications Konstantin Noskov and Governor of Ugra Natalia Komarova have made their joint visit to the IT Forum Exhibition.
