The document is the reflection of the Erasmus+ strategic partnership project LAAR, or Learning Analytics and Augmented Reality. With this text, we aim at the layman reader that is interested in education and training, without being an expert in the fields of education or training, neither as the field of digital learning platforms and applications

IO 2:  Prototype AR learning application with integrated LA elements      

AR training application: "Who Am I" app

The LAAR project developed an application to learn the different safety signs in a real live environment.  The app is multilingual and includes three different modes: a training mode, an exploration mode and a quiz mode.

LAAR "Who Am I" app source code on Github


AR training application: "Follow Me" app

The LAAR project developed an application to learn how to prepare a truss for connection with an other in a real live environment.  The app is based on the peer assessment method. There are two interconnected apps, one for the learner, one for the peer. The learner gets instructions, the peer verifies the results and steers the progress.

AR training application for the Microsoft Hololens

An application to train connecting trusses was developed for the Hololens. The application leads the user through the process, but gives more freedom to chose which type of information the user wants to see or use.

AR-portal app

To integrate the above apps into a larger consistent learning experience, the LAAR project developed a virtual learning environment for a phone or tablet.
