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. Let us take an example.

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?

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

AR: Augmenting the Reality of Learning

Social Learning

Augmented reality (AR), as defined by the infallible Wikipedia, is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It differs from virtual reality in that it modifies the real world instead of replacing it with a simulated one.
