Augmented Reality

Just a Fad or a Profound Tool for Teaching and Improving Campus Life?
Augmented Reality (AR) overlays digital information on the physical world, creating layers that can be viewed through a smartphone or tablet.

In the classroom

Instructors use AR to add interactive elements, such as hyperlinks, audio, and images, to textbooks or other objects of study, such as a painting. Learn how to use AR to facilitate active learning, support peer-to-peer learning, and engage students with course materials in a new way!

On campus

AR can be used, for example, to overlay information about university buildings, such as the offices located inside, and points of interest, such as a brief history of the oldest tree on campus. Discover the easy-to-use software you need to create an augmented reality experience on campus!
