Future Reality Lab at NYU developed a program entitled 'ChalkTalk' powered by Verizon's 5G connectivity. ChalkTalk is an immersive tool used for education that runs in real-time, which makes it suitable for efficiently bringing together global teams. It uses augmented reality that renders objects through multimedia in three-dimensional forms. This is based on the concept that students can learn more efficiently through primary experience than through a lecture. This allows students to have first-hand interactions with learning materials, providing a personal virtual lesson.
The 5G technology allows for students and instructors to communicate in real-time due to its powerful connectivity. ChalkTalk's technology has the opportunity to deliver high speed as well as low latency to blur the line between the speed of face-to-face and online communication.
