An Evaluation on the Feasibility of Augmented Reality as a supplementary learning tool
Cardiff Metropolitan University
MetadataShow full item record
A range of technologies are used within educational institutions to facilitate the learning of a wide variety of subject matters. Augmented reality is increasingly becoming a technology with major research focus, as potential applications for it in different facets of society are explored. One research emphasis is placed upon the benefits it provides in visualising information and how this can tie into an educational context, particularly as a supplementary tool that can be added to teacher’s repertoires. This study utilises a combination of research conducted by other authors alongside primary data collected from university staff and student populations to determine the feasibility of AR implementation in this sector. The principal findings generated from this indicate a willingness and desire for AR tools to be available on university courses by both groups; engineering, medical/sport, art, science and computer-based courses specifically. There are also indications that AR can provide support to those with disabilities due to its visualisation capability. However, this implementation is constrained by several feasibility factors. These include providing explicitly defined uses for AR within those courses, providing training in how to use them, ensuring comfortable integration with existing tools and building a support network around them. Ultimately, if these feasibility constraints are considered and solved, AR can find success as an educational tool.
