Technological advances enable the use of innovative learning tools for education. This work gives a brief insight into the potential and challenges of using collaborative Augmented Reality (AR) in education within the greater context of immersive virtual learning

Augmented reality in architectural construction, inspection and renovation
free download

We present our preliminary work in developing augmented reality systems to improve methods for the construction, inspection, and renovation of architectural structures. Augmented reality systems add virtual computer-generated material to the surrounding physical world. Our augmented

Augmented reality : An application of heads-up display technology to manual manufacturing processes
free download

We describe the design and prototyping steps we have taken toward the implementation of a heads-up, see-through, head-mounted display (HUDSET). Combined with head position sensing and a real world registration system, this technology allows a computer-produced

Interactive augmented reality

This article deals with educational opportunities for mixed reality games and related scenarios for learning. It discusses several issues and educational challenges to be tackled when linking augmented reality and augmented virtuality. Second, the paper describes the

A survey of evaluation techniques used in augmented reality studies
free download

In this paper we report on an initial survey of user evaluation techniques used in Augmented Reality (AR) research. To identify all papers which include AR evaluations we reviewed research publications between the years 1993 and 2007 from online databases of selected

Digital dualism versus augmented reality
free download

And some have a bias to see the digital and the physical as separate; what I am calling digital dualism. Digital dualists believe that the digital world is virtual and the physical world real. This bias motivates many of the critiques of sites like Facebook and the rest of the

Multimedia augmented reality interface for e-learning (MARIE)
