Abstract

In this era of teaching and learning, most students are fond of interactive learning compared to traditional  lectures that uses whiteboard and marker pen. Because of that, educators need to be more creative in preparing their teaching material in order to attract students’ attention during teaching and learning process.

Augmented reality, AR, is technology where virtual reality is combined with the real world. The main devices for AR are displays, computers, input and tracking devices but recent advances in smartphone technology making them suitable as an AR platforms. This augmentation technique seems relevant to be applied in teaching field because it will help teachers to develop a dynamic material that is capable to capture students’ attention, engagement and participation in a classroom. In addition, AR is very helpful in learning process where students can always listen and view the lecture videos anytime they pleased.
