Aprendo – Classroom and Schoolbook Augmentation
Aprendo is a platform aimed at allowing educators to use modern augmented reality technology to enhance classroom and study experience. Using inexpensive hardware and software, new and updated information can be linked to markers or the pages of school books, which can be accessed through a webpage or a mobile application.
The app can be downloaded by any student, who then uses a login created by his school administration that allows him to access content linked to schoolbook pages, like videos, webpages or 3D models. Another use of the platform happens during class. Using printed markers, a webcam and a projector, the teacher can show the students detailed 3D models or videos related to the day’s study subject. The whole UI/UX is thought to look and feel easy to use, with straightforward buttons and interactions aimed at low and cheap training.
