701 BYOD: Make and Take 5 Innovative Microlearning AR Experiences

2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Wednesday, June 27


You’ve seen some amazing augmented reality experiences, and you want to get started right now on a project of your own. But designing, developing, and delivering an AR experience often takes months and cost thousands of dollars. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could do it for free? And do it today? What if you could make and test your own AR experiences to share with your stakeholders right now?

In this session, you’ll create five innovative microlearning AR experiences. You’ll use a fully functional trial version of an online authoring tool to create your experiences. You’ll make a “get-to-know-me” contact trigger and add your professional contact info, LinkedIn profile, and conversation starters/interests. This trigger can be added to your conference badge to facilitate conversations. You’ll also make a book launchpad trigger, where you can add author videos, summaries, digital versions, and more to a trigger of your favorite book. You’ll make three more AR experiences, plus access many more ideas, samples, and even source files that you can modify for your own projects.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to create an AR experience of your own in minutes
  • How to make a great learning and user experience
  • Three design principles you should use when designing microlearning AR experiences
  • The easiest and fastest ways to get people excited about AR


Designers and developers.
