What is it?

Blippar is an augmented reality app that uses markers (still images) which can then become an interactive tool, such as a video. It is a tool often used for marketing but also in education.

How does it work?

Blippar works by recognising a marker image which then displays an overlay which can be several different things, ranging from a picture to an interactive video or webpage. These are referred to as blipps and are created through BlippBuilder.

What are the implications for teaching, learning and assessment?

Blippar has several potential uses in teaching and learning. Blippar allows for an interactive type of learning to improve student engagement and will help move away from didactic teaching. For example, markers in Blippar can open interactive quizzes and games for students of any age to use. However, an educational license is needed if it were used for this purpose.
