The Think XR project aims to develop a curriculum and new teaching modules in the field of augmented and virtual reality. XR technologies are recognised as one of the new key digital technologies in Europe (Expert Workshop on Interactive Technologies), as they represent a new, modern, digital and interactive medium.

Within the Think XR project, ULFE's role will be to review and select appropriate virtual and augmented reality technologies for teaching, develop new didactic approaches and methodologies, design and evaluate the user experience of the developed solutions in the XR environment, conduct scientific research, disseminate the results and promote the project. The main benefit of participating in the project is the transfer of knowledge and experience in multimedia and augmented reality (XR) technologies and their application for effective education to other partners. Due to its role in the education sector, ULFE also has extensive experience in the development of teaching materials and teaching methods. In addition to technical expertise, specific skills for designing a good and human-friendly user experience of XR solutions and interactions in XR environments are also important. This will enable the development of the necessary skills and new services that can be implemented at both national and local level, thus contributing to competitiveness.
