About the solution

The Japanese college, Business BreakThrough University (BBT) used high-tech solutions to ensure its students could still walk across the stage at graduation.

During the ceremony, held on March 28, several students received their diplomas as digital ‘avatars’ of themselves. The ‘avatars’ were dressed in caps and gowns and included screens for faces.

The graduation featured four robots and the students experienced the ceremony through an online call.

“We hope this initiative will be helpful to educational institutions who are having difficulty holding graduation ceremonies and entrance ceremonies,” Shugo Yanaka, the dean of BBT’s global business administration.
