Augmented Reality – Making Paper Interactive

Upside Learning

One of the ways we recommend is to use elements of Augmented Reality. Over the course of the last few years, we’ve experimented quite often with augmented reality (AR) technology, either in the form of AR apps for mobile phones, or leveraging AR browsers, etc. Leverage augmented reality, there are many worthwhile applications. more about this later).

How to Use Augmented Reality for Technology Based Learning

Origin Learning

It works to make the real virtual, and uses virtual to simulate reality. That being said for the humor, let’s explore how augmented reality can be used for technology based learning, such as e-learning and m-learning. For other organizations, where virtual reality is not that big a necessity, augmented reality does the trick. Technology acts funny at times.

An Augmented Reality Future

Upside Learning

The use of augmented reality as an interface has mostly been gimmicky. Perhaps the only other AR based apps that have made equal sense are the augmented reality browsers. Augmented reality will eventually allow a unique way to control our increasingly digital world, how will ‘Workplace Learning’ take advantage of this?

Dont Waste Your Time

Following on from previous posts on Augmented Reality ( Does it have a place/future in education? and Augmented Reality on campus ) I’ve spent a little time trying, and enjoying, the experience of using and creating Aurasmas , but have not got anywhere past the stage of just trying it out. So, what place does augmented reality (AR) have in the classroom?

Augmented Reality and M-Learning

So I was excited to stumble upon their Augmented Reality browsing of Powerhouse Museum around Sydney app for Apple and Android. love history, I love augmented reality, and I own an iPhone – so a combination of all three proved irresistible. The app barely augments reality. In short, the augmented reality component is redundant.

Pokemon Go: Does this mean augmented reality learning is a thing?


Little did he know that we’d be reaching a point that we’re finally altering (or “augmenting”) not just the physical world around us, but reality itself. Sure, augmented reality is nothing new. What Pokemon Go achieved, though, is making augmented reality not only popular and tangible for millions of people, but also fun. Enter Pokemon Go.

Will augmented reality revolutionize training?


Wearable computers are the means and augmented reality is the interface between what we know to be the real world and the so called virtual world. Augmented reality (AR) although still in its infancy if we consider its spread, promises to set high standards of connectivity for the not so distant future. From open-cord surgery performed by anyone, to simulating the conditions of Mars, or studying a bigger part of the cosmos, augmented reality seems to be a basic step in achieving all these far-fetched ideas. Is AR just the latest fad? Permalink

The two types of augmented reality

My favourite example of augmented reality is now a couple of years old: While it might not be as flash as the xkcd enthusiasts might demand from this emerging technology, it remains practical and – gasp! But are these two latter examples really augmented reality? Instead, they are augmenting a representation of reality. Reality is in real-time.

Layar the first mobile augmented reality application

Augmented reality is the natural next step off technological mobile applications. Augmented reality gives you just that bit more information when and where you need it. And, if you would link augmented reality to the semantic web, we would probably have something like the fourth dimension. Layar builds on the Android platform. Cool idea.
