Abstract: Digitalization in higher education has become an unprecedented demand in recent years, especially under exigent circumstances, such as the recent COVID-19 pandemic. New formats and platforms for learning objects must be devised to conform with decentralized learning demands. Parametric modeling and mixed reality (MR) technology provide a sound basis for designing virtual learning environments. This paper presents an MR application as an immersive and interactive virtual experiment for structural engineering students. The experiment visualizes structural analysis results as interactive holograms. Different experiment phases and modes are explained in details, followed by a discussion on further extension possibilities to the MR application.
