Mixed Reality Handbooks for Mining EducationMixed Reality Handbooks for Mining Education


MiReBooks produces a series of Virtual and Augmented Reality based (=Mixed Reality MR) interactive mining handbooks as a new digital standard for higher mining education across Europe. Many current challenges in mining education will be met in an innovative new way, by combining classical paper based teaching materials with MR materials and their transformation into pedagogically and didactically coherent MR handbooks for integrative classroom use.
