Interactive 3D teaching software provider 3D-Hub, which offers 3D software and ‘virtual models’ for the classroom, has become a certified Dell Technology Partner.
To be awarded this prestigious accreditation, 3D-Hub’s software has been tested by the Dell Industry Solution labs to ensure it meets technical requirements to perform well on Dell platforms.
The software is downloaded online and installed on the classroom PC as a 3D interactive media player and, via a projector and 3D glasses, allows virtual models to be manipulated, animated and disassembled interactively – further enhancing students’ learning experience.
It also has a video capability and is able to support 3D document cameras, all within one piece of software which, combined with market-leading technology solutions from Dell, will enable schools to improve their IT provision whilst reducing costs.
Schools or colleges, who buy the 3D-Hub software as part of a Dell technology solution, will also have the added benefit of Dell technical support.
3D-Hub’s Commercial Director, Mark Reynard, commented: “We’re delighted to be formally certified as a Dell Technology Partner. Our innovative software and content, combined with Dell’s education technology, will offer schools better value for money and flexible learning solutions which have been thought through from start to finish.”
The announcement comes just one year after 3D-Hub was launched and follows a successful BETT 2013 for the firm.
During the four day exhibition at Excel London, 3D-Hub showcased its software and content as part of a series of demonstrations on the Dell stand. Using Dell’s new S500wi Interactive Ultra Short Throw Projector, which is 3D ready, the demonstrations by 3D-Hub showed how the combination of the technology can turn classrooms into a captivating place to relay important lessons to students.
3D-Hub’s Software Development Director, Dr. Don Brittain, took part in the Dell Education Think Tank at BETT, which saw industry experts discuss three key topics: closing the learning gap, data driven innovation, and student driven transparency. Speaking at the collaborative forum, he said of teaching in 3D: “Visual learners now have an outlet that they could never get from a text book… they’re more enabled by digital and certainly those who aren’t visual learners aren’t hindered by it, so it is enabling more students to learn more effectively.”
