This course is an introductory course and therefore suitable for staff in further and higher education who have limited or no experience of the use of augmented reality. We have endeavoured to capture a flavour of the current use of the technology to provide launch pad for your own research and development.
The course will:
Explain what is meant by the term “Augmented Reality”
Outline some of the uses in the academic and the wider world
Suggest ways in which freely available applications can be used in the learning environment
We recognise that not every one will have access to a mobile device that is suitable for working with some of the suggestions and examples. Where possible we have included alternative desktop applications, so there will still be sufficient material for you to achieve the aims of the course. Where we have quoted a specific mobile device application we have been careful to state the operating systems it will work on. In the main these will be iPhone (3Gs or 4), Android and Symbian devices.
