Blackboard adds augmented reality to campus iPhone apps | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education |

"Blackboard has added augmented reality (AR) to its Blackboard Mobile Central platform, giving college students the opportunity to take enhanced informational tours of their campus and surroundings... AR is designed to let students use the iPhone to explore their surroundings and to navigate the campus and its buildings, including moving through a dormitory complex or 'even see(ing) a bus blocks away moving in real time,' according to information released by the company. The Blackboard AR application also lets users point their smartphones at campus buildings to learn the building's name, significance, hours of operation, and historical information, the company said."
