Using Augmented Reality with the Book
Creating Media for Learning is one of the first books that utilizes augmented reality to allow readers to interact with the printed page.
The book includes sample projects that demonstrate the use of specific media. Each project is represented with an image printed in your book. If a picture is worth a thousand words, shouldn’t a short video be worth at least a thousand pictures? I definitely believe it can, and I’ve used an innovative technique to allow you to view those videos. Through the aid of augmented reality, you’re able to point your mobile device at specific images in the book and see the associated video playing—right there on the printed page. Seriously!
Here’s how you do it:
Want to try it now?
Go ahead. I know you want to try it out. Download the DAQRI or Blippar app. Open the app and point it at the image on the left (Just imagine that it's a printed page!).
Now imagine how cool it will be when you have Creating Media for Learning book and you have access to embedded videos throughout the book!
