Description

Extended reality (XR) technology blends the physical and virtual worlds, and has significant potential to transform education. Augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) provide an interactive learning experience that allows students to visualize and explore complex concepts. AR technology is particularly useful for physics as it can provide an immersive and interactive learning experience, making the invisible visible. This proof-of-principle project developed AR simulations for a virtual optical table and introductory electromagnetism. The simulations were evaluated by undergraduate students and academic staff members who found the tools to provide an engaging and immersive learning experience with great potential.
