Lecturer Dr. Abdullah Hussein Awdal, at the
Department of Natural Resources Engineering and Management, presented the UKH?s
26th Lunch seminar on Thursday 6th of July, 2017. His presentation focused on
Augmented Reality and its applications in Science.
Augmented Reality (AR) can be defined as
the integration of digital information into the real-world environment in real
time. This integration is made possible by computer-generated sensory inputs such
as GPS data, video, sound, and graphics. Handheld devices such as smartphones
and the iPad contain software, sensors, a compass and small digital projectors
which display images onto real world objects. In summary, technology appears to
be in every aspect of people?s lives recently. Augmented Reality is at the
forefront of the technology, and it brings new dimensions to learning.
Therefore, it would be an interesting venue for future teaching methods.
