By ,   February 23, 2019 ,   Cruise Industry

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises introduced a brand new, user-friendly concept for digital learning that has been never seen before onboard an expedition vessel – the study wall, that will be found on company's newest ships Hanseatic Inspiration, Hanseatic Nature and Hanseatic Spirit.

With an attractive design and innovative touch technology, the 6x1.8 m (19.6x5.9 ft) screen allows passengers to research background information and complex topics about the cruise destinations.

Hapag-Lloyd has been developing the concept for around 2 and a half years, via the partnership with Hamburg-based companies Intermediate Engineering GmbH and mgp ErlebnisRaumDesign GmbH.

Articles are divided into 5 categories including “Countries and People” and “Seas and Oceans”. The content, which is provided by GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in Kiel Germany, as well as journalists, experts, and scientists, is displayed on the study wall in the form of articles, biographies, and videos.

The innovative study wall format allows travelers to deepen their knowledge of the cruise, however, and whenever they wish.

The study wall is the heart of ships' Ocean Academy situated on Deck 8. Here passengers can conduct individual research and studies to deepen their knowledge of the natural wonders that they encounter on shore trips and Zodiac rides.

In addition to Hapag-Lloyd's study wall, the Ocean Academy features 4 Study Seats that have swivel touchscreens where passengers can explore the content of the study wall. The Ocean Academy features the Study Poster, providing clear visual explanations of scientific contexts, along with a microscope area.
