Recently, as online services have been spotlighted in the wake of the rapid development of IT technology and the COVID-19 virus, the metaverse market is also growing rapidly. Among them, more and more attempts are being made to apply metaverse technology in the education field. It is because, through metaverse technology, users can indirectly experience education, such as experiments that are difficult to experience in reality.
However, there is still a view of concern about the introduction of metaverse technology in the education field. The problem is the supply of equipment for metaverse education, as well as the differences in the direct and indirect experience of education that exists.
Ucon Creative pays attention to these problems to reduce the heterogeneity of metaverse education and link existing online education contents to EduCore, and ultimately maximize the advantages of metaverse education beyond time and space to solve the educational gap between regions and income.
In addition, in order to overcome the limitations of existing online education that is only one-way communication, EduCore is implementing a self-directed learning design through 24-hour two-way communication 365 days using AI instructors. Also, the company is active as a leading company in the development of domestic standards (KS) for educational metaverse services along with the Korea Standards Association (KSA), and is determined to make efforts to develop international standards (ISO).
Metaverse EduCore, an educational metaverse platform, was selected in the IT/SW category for 2022 digital innovation organized by the Hankook Ilbo and the Ministry of Science and ICT.
Ucon Creative was also selected as a K-Metaverse global capacity-building company supported by the Ministry of Science and ICT and the Information and Communication Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA) and participated in the 2022 Mobile World Congress (MWC2022) held in Las Vegas, Nevada, from September 28th to the 30th.
Kang Jong-Jin, Ceo of Ucon Creative, said, "As the society develops, Metaverse will be applied to all aspects of the world, including politics, economy, society, and culture," adding, "We want to contribute to a successful establishment of Metavers in the education industry that forms the basis of our society."
