As the prolonged Corona 19 leads to online technological innovation, various attempts such as space construction and R&D using core technologies of the 4th industrial revolution are continuing in the educational field in Busan.
Dong-A University recently completed the 'INSPIRE HALL', a multi-purpose smart classroom on the 3rd floor of the Seunghak Campus Professor Hall. This hall features a large screen that fills the walls and sound/recording facilities, enabling cutting-edge education using the network. With 191 seats, including 50 for computer classes, it will be used for lectures and practices in the College of Health Sciences and Smart Healthcare Convergence Majors, as well as the employment support room program.

Dongui University opened a space (D-VR/AR SPACE) to experience virtual and augmented reality at the Central Library last month. Here, you can experience virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and extended reality (XR) with VR devices, large screens, and smart pads. On the first floor of the Industry-University Cooperation Building, a living lab decorated like a home is opened and used for research on artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things in everyday life.
The use of new technology in the classroom is also active. Dong-Eui University of Science and Technology opened an 'AI Cafe' last year where you can experience artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, and recently is using VR technology for physical therapy, anatomy classes, and welding practice.
