Piet Kommers's curator insight, April 6, 2013 5:28 PM

Realism and spatially-correct environments elicit new ambitions for learning. Virtuality and immersiveness however is not a pandora for the essential problems like motivation, concentration and abstraction. Let's build upon the  success of gaming and check if a more playing attitude by the learner leads to certain benefits for longer term learning.

Collaboration in Augmented Reality

Collaboration in Augmented Reality | Olli's Digest | Scoop.it

AR systems can be used to create unique collaborative experiences. For example, co-located users can see shared 3D virtual objects that they interact with, or a user can annotate the live video view of a remote worker, enabling them to collaborate at a distance. The overall goal is to augment the face-to-face collaborative experience, or to enable remote people to feel that they are virtually co-located.
