Augmented Reality Tools Useful and Accepted for Classroom Training By Students

Teacher Insights

Augmented Reality (AR) tools were found to be useful and had higher acceptance among students for training purposes, according to a new study.

AR-enriched notes were considered by students to be easy to use and availability of easy-to-use programs such as 'Augmented Class, "Blippar" and "HPReveal". The study was conducted among 396 students of which 138 were men and 258 women. They were students of the Pedagogy Degree and Educational Application of ICT in the University of Seville. The class notes were enriched with video clips of teacher's class session which can be viewed later through different mobile devices. The video clips were inserted into class notes through Software Development Kit and downloadable.

The Technology Acceptance Model or Tam postulated by Davis in 1989 according to which attitude to use of a new technology was determined by two variables-perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use.

The study results show that AR enriched notes help students gain more knowledge of the subject. The researchers have concluded that creation of such type of learning objects should be promoted in universities.
