Course Description

EDUC 439/639: Augmented Reality

EDUC 439/639, Augmented Reality, is an ed tech special topics course that uses a new Apple Teacher curriculum built around 9 freely available AR apps for the iPhone and iPad. Students learn to design lessons incorporating AR across the full range of PK-16 content. There will be an exciting project for everyone in the course and students will get to decide what they want to do. Students will make presentations of their chosen apps and thereby form a powerful learning community in which they learn from each other and share their experiences in the course discussion forum.

This course is organized into a series of modules that are presented to you via the Web. The modules are attached to a collabsible menu that organizes the modules in roughly the same order in which they will be discussed in class. You need not complete these modules in this prescribed order, however. Rather, you can work through the course at your own pace, skipping modules that do not interest you, and spending more time on those that do.


Your grade in this course will be based on your performance on a series of assignments that appear on this online syllabus. At any time, you can view the assignments. This list of assignments provides you with a snapshot of what you need to do in this course. All the rest is optional. It is totally up to you how much of the other material you will want to complete. Your instructor will help guide you, depending on the topics you choose to pursue.


You will receive grades on three kinds of activities. First, there are communication assignments that involve you in online discussions with your fellow classmates and your instructor. Second, you will propose and make a presentation about one of the augmentted reality apps included in this course. Third, using tools of your choosing, you will design an intervention or lesson that uses augmented reality to help people learn something. These three parts of the course each constitute a third of your final grade.
