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.

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).

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. To an extent, it can be compared to the mobile phone, which was once an unrealistic dream and has now become the norm. How augmented reality affects business training. However, those few researches picture a bright future for augmented reality.
