The Augmented Reality Application for Teaching and Learning Basic PC Maintenance
Augmented reality is hidden content, most commonly hidden behind marker images, that can be included in printed and film media, as long as the marker is displayed for a suitable length of time, in a steady position for an application to identify and analyze it. Depending on the on the content, the marker may have to remain visible. Using a mobile application, a mobile phone’s camera identifies and interprets a marker, often a black and white barcode image. The software analyses the marker and creates a virtual image overlay on the mobile phone’s screen, tied to the position of the camera. This means the application works with the camera to interpret the angles and distance the mobile phone is away from the marker. The use of augmented reality for teaching and learning: Basic PC maintenance will be the best way to attract and deliver knowledge. The scope of this project will involve staff and students of Universiti Selangor. The cost of print could also be reduced with the use of augmented reality technology for learning and teaching process.
