Challenges and Solutions to Creating Accessible OERs with AR, VR, and MR

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR) are exciting technologies to explore in finding new ways to bring history, stories, science and the arts to life in a way that entertains, engages and ultimately educates students. While newer and sexier, these technologies are not the solution to every project. You must first ask yourself why AR, VR or MR? What problem would these technologies solve for you? Would another medium be more effective in reaching your goals? If AR, VR, or MR is the right fit for your project, then what are the AR, VR, or MR challenges in addressing the needs of your project - looking at everything from connectivity, to ease of use, to comfort, to hardware, to funding …etc?

To aid in answering these questions, we explore case studies from a number of organizations, around the world, using AR, VR, and MR as educational solutions. In the process we will examine the challenges and successes that they have had with these technologies. Additionally, we will explore their decisions in making their creations open, free, or restricted, and why.
