Centre of Excellence on Metaverse to initiate International Hub for Education in Mixed Reality in Mysore

The hub aims to enable an ecosystem that will build capacity, train teachers, spawn edtech start-ups benefited by research and make Karnataka the technology and research assisted enabler for NEP implementation in India.

Karnataka Digital Economy Mission (KDEM), Excelsoft Technologies, and UNESCO – Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP) have announced to initiate the International Hub for Education in Mixed Reality (IHEM) in Mysore as the first step towards the Centre of Excellence in Metaverse. 

At the Bengaluru Tech Summit last month, Minister for IT/BT and Higher Education, C.N. Ashwath Narayan, had announced the creation of the Center of Excellence (CoE) in Metaverse.

The announcement came on the decennial celebrations of UNESCO MGIEP on Monday, where authorities said IHEM is being set up with the International Science of Learning Institute (ISLI) at its centre to provide world-class research-based and certified educational resources to learners.
