616 BYOL: Engaging Tech—Getting Started with Augmented Reality
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Thursday, October 26
Finding ways to make learning “stick” with technology is always a challenge. Augmented reality (AR) is one of those “make it stick” technology options available for education and training. However, AR can seem overwhelming, expensive, time-consuming, and difficult to use in everyday learning development. It’s these assumptions that can cause designers and developers to overlook the potential this technology holds for their learners, which is a shame, as AR is becoming simpler and cheaper than ever to create.
In this session, you’ll explore just how easy it can be to get started with augmented reality. You’ll be introduced to free development tools that you can use to create original AR content. You’ll then use a selection of these tools to immediately create your own AR project that you can share with your colleagues as a proof of concept. You’ll leave this session with the practical knowledge you’ll need to plan, build, and share engaging AR projects for learning.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to plan out successful AR elements for use in your projects
- About the necessary components of a successful AR project
- How to design your own AR project with free development tools
- How you can use interactions and multimedia assets to enhance an AR project
- How to publish your AR design
Novice to intermediate designers and developers.
