Educational Applications for the Microsoft HoloLens

Students described their experience developing for the HoloLens at a 2017 Tech Talk.

Bryn Mawr College partnered with Pearson Interactive, to envision, explore and test potential higher education applications for the Microsoft HoloLens. Pearson Education provided the College with a set of these augmented reality devices, and LITS and Pearson staff hosted demonstration events for faculty and staff, science courses, students participating in LILAC’s STEM Intensives, Sudo Hoot, and Bryn Mawr Engineers and Makers. We are also jointly sponsored winter break and summer internships for undergraduates, where students got first-hand experience with developing and testing applications for a 3D, augmented reality environment. In the process, interns developed design thinking, project management, and collaborative communication skills, and gained experience working as part of a diverse development team distributed across continents.
