Extended reality tools to support learning activities in engineering

Goals of the Project

The main objective of XREN is to enhance the digital skills of young engineers, with a special focus on XR technologies and support the use of XR in higher education courses in engineering. XR provides substantial assistance to educators and instructors who aim to integrate these technologies into their teaching. Immersive and collaborative XR experiences prove highly effective in enhancing learning by delivering engaging content and improving comprehension as students engage with challenging technical and design tasks.


The project focuses on the design, implementation, test and validation of XR based workflows to support learning activities in engineering. A special focus is given to sustainability with re-manufacturing processes aimed at repairing and recycling products. The workflows, including specifications on the intended learning outcomes, the data and the associated tools, will be documented and disseminated.

Co-design labs and workshops

Students from the different partners institutions will take part in XR remote learning co-design labs, where they will develop and test the XR learning workflows. Joined workshops will involve students and tutors in a full immersion hands on learning experience taking advantage of XR technologies.
