What is it?
Aurasma is an augmented reality app that uses markers (still images) which can then become an interactive tool, such as a video. It is widely used in marketing and promotion, but also has uses in education.
How does it work?
Aurasma 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.
What are the implications for teaching, learning and assessment?
Aurasma has several potential uses in teaching and learning. Aurasma allows for an interactive type of learning to improve student engagement, helping to move away from didactic teaching.
