Augmented reality (AR) offers the potential to integrate physical, digital and social learning experiences in hybrid learning environments and thereby to achieve learning gains, higher motivation or improved interaction and collaboration. Moreover, by means of AR, theory- or calculus-based learning and experimental exploration in the lab can be brought closer together. Here we present a data-driven AR enhancement of experiments in an electricity and magnetism lab course, where measurement data such as actual current and voltage, are transmitted to a head-mounted semi-transparent display (HMD).
Augmented-Reality-Experimente: Ladungen in magnetischen und elektrischen Feldern
Poster @ DPG-Frühjahrstagung 2018, March 2018.
Motivated by the advent of mass-market head-mounted immersive displays, we set out to pioneer the technology needed to experience recordings of the real world with the sense of full immersion as provided by VR goggles.
