Eleanor Johnston's insight:

Using Aurasma. I'm interested in utilising this technology for some library services e.g. by layering videos onto the main collection, maps etc etc.

 

Do you need an apple developer account to get things on there? I remember something about ‘skinning’ but am not sure exactly what this entails. If you can just set up your institution in Aurasma and get students to sign up then this seems much easier.

 

All advice greatly received.
