UNIVERSITY PRESENTS INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY R&D IN EDUCATION AT ITF

The 'Information Technology for All' Exhibition 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-based Physics Practical Class'.


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


Besides, Prof. Yavoruk delivered his report on AR Lecturer Assistant Application Device at the 'Digital Tools in Education Environment' round table, having demonstrated his AR/VR/MR inventory performance and its operation principles.


Along with this project, the university also presents other R&Ds, such as 'Academic Migration', a service for searching and transferring to state-financed places between 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 'Power Efficiency Improvement for a Regionally-Isolated Electric and Technical System Based on Equipment Optimization'. 


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


The YUSU students also 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.


On top of that, Russian Minister of Digital Development, Telecom and Mass Communications Konstantin Noskov and Governor of Ugra Natalia Komarova have made a visit to the IT Forum Exhibition.
