Online Training Program on Immersive Technologies for Education (ImTech4Ed)

ARTutor was introduced and utilized in the short training program Online Training Program on Immersive Technologies for Education, under the Erasmus+ program  Immersive Technologies for Education (ImTech4Ed)”, which focuses on the application of augmented and virtual reality technologies in STEAM education.

The training involved students, researchers, and teachers and was available remotely. It included asynchronous activities (eg educational content study, excercizes) and a total of 5 online meetings.

The training was attended by teachers of different STEAM domains and students from different study programs (computing, game design, arts, humanities & social sciences) in universities of various European countries (Cyprus, Greece, Germany). In this way the innovative content was combined with the possibility of cultivating “21st century skills” concerning creativity and the ability to operate and collaborate in heterogeneous groups.

The training took place between 28th February 2022 and 14th March 2022

ARTutor in the european project iPEAR

The iPEAR (Inclusive Peer Learning with Augmented Reality Apps) is european project KA2 , with 36 months duration and 336,536 budget. The project combines collaborative expertise of technology-enhanced learning researchers, computer scientists, and educators to build a strategic partnership to streamline the adoption of Augmented Reality (AR) technology in educational practice.

The project will create innovative open educational resources for educators that help implement and integrate active and collaborative learning pedagogical approaches supported by AR. This will enrich the teaching practice and support inclusive, peer to peer learning relevant to the requirements and preferences of the students.

The main objectives of the project are to:

  1. Map the educational use of AR, focusing on collaborative and peer learning approaches
  2. Facilitate the adoption of AR in education by creating open access teaching and learning material for educators
  3. Create and maintain a community of experts in educational AR and other stakeholders that will ensure sustainability of the project and keep the most useful results up-to-date

The ARTutor platform is one of the 8 tools that are proposed in the iPEAR project for educational use.  It is important to note that ARTutor is the only FREE platform available for educators.

Once the Book is created, you can add augmentations to bring your book to life.
The augmentations are displayed when the camera of the mobile device detects the trigger image that you have set.
When creating augmentations, you can select the multimedia information (image, video, 3D model, audio, web page, YouTube video) that will be displayed when the trigger image is located by the camera.
You can add as many augmentations as you wish to a Book.

Add Complex Augmentations with AR Experience Editor

Simple augmentations of any type can be added to each Book, such as image, video, 3D model, audio, webpage or a YouTube video.
With AR Experience Editor you can add complex augmentations that combine images, videos, 3D models and 3D shapes.
The complex augmentation will be displayed when the camera of the mobile device detects the trigger image that you have set.
The complex augmentation will appear exactly as you designed it in the AR Experience Editor.
