Learning how to do it!
Augmented reality (AR) is an enhanced version of the real physical world through the use of digital visual elements, sound, or other sensory stimuli using via technology. It is a growing trend in mobile computing and business applications in particular.
Trying to experiment in creating and developing my own – to apply for active learning and teaching sessions. With the new norm- many lecture/ classes are still virtual and based on ODL. Students including lecturers are getting stressed and overwhelmed to certain extend ( a separate topic to discuss and argue). And to certain extent getting bored with powerpoint slides and teacher centred learning approach. ; hopefully with this application- I can create more engaging and stimulating learning environment.
Sharing my first assignment ; for the AR course that I attended. Not much on the content as I did not invest a lot of time developing it yet. Still at the stage of exploring the functions and what the application can and can’t do. ( Youtube link: https://youtu.be/6XgYjFUM-Kg)
Surprised that the project won me a Bronze in the competition.!!!
