Augmented Reality

My colleague Lindsay Karp and I co-presented the following session at Campus Technology 2015.

Augmented Reality: Fad or Profound Tool for Teaching and Campus Life?

Augmented Reality is an emerging technology trend that faculty and schools are beginning to explore to improve student engagement in the classroom and on campus.  AR can be used to add interactive elements, such as hyperlinks, audio, and images, and video to textbooks or other objects of study as well as offices and university buildings.

In the classroom
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 which offices are located inside, and points of interest, such as a brief history of the oldest tree on campus.
