Pedagogics meets digital
MiReBooks is a new digital learning experience that will change the way we teach, learn and subsequently apply mining. By taking traditional paper based education material and enriching it with virtual and augmented reality based experiences (Mixed Reality) teachers can now convey and students now experience phenomena in the classroom that are usually not easily accessible in the real world. Complex issues of mining are no longer a challenging barrier for learning progress and students complete their studies with a more thorough comprehension of their discipline. Through thought through pedagogic inclusion in teaching plans students will be able to take advantage of new ways of participation that are suitable for the needs of their generation. With MiReBooks the way of teaching will change as instructors will be able engage their students in a more effective way and offer them an enriched content repertoire as well as a hightened comprehension opportunity.
360° Videos and photos
LKAB mine as part of the consortium, as well as several mines around Europe, opened their doors to MiReBooks to film 360° videos of the different mining processes. These videos are then processed and complemented with interactive content, such as text and graphics. Once ready, the students can access them and guided by the lecturer have an enhanced understanding of complex mining concepts.

VR is anything we want it to be. There are few limitations particularly in the education space. MR is a beautiful opportunity to take students into a high consequence environment without leaving the classroom but with obtaining even better and a wider variety of results as if they had really gone into the field. The array of possible industrial mine environment examples that students can be immersed into becomes endless. The industry will receive graduates that are familiarized in-depth with a holistic view on the industrial context and are digitally fit for the job.
