Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Hololens in education?

I am a Middle School teacher and a beginner in using Sketch Up with my students. I came across this site and would be very much interested in finding ways to use the Hololens with Sketch Up with my students. My students are already excited about using Sketch Up for their Project Based Learning projects and using a Hololens would certainly take their designs to a whole new level of creativity and possibilities.

I was wondering if there are other educators out there that might be using it with their students yet?


  • Hello @ayoshimi Last week was computer science week and I took two pair of holoLens to a couple different local schools. The majority of the students were in 4th grade and they really enjoyed the Galaxy Explorer app. When Paint 3D comes out it "should" be really easy to import 3D creations into the HoloLens which could be really awesome.
