Day 1: Halo AR

It's no surprise that the first resource for the #31DaysofARVRinEDU event is an experience you can now view on the front cover of my new book, The Immersive Classroom: Create Customized Learning Experiences with AR/VR. Using tools like Halo AR, every image in the book is interactive for readers to see firsthand immersive experiences.


One of the most requested resources is a tool to replace Aurasma/HP Reveal. The new Halo AR app is coming from LightUp and brings many of the great features from Aurasma with upgrades!

"Don't miss the front cover experience of the book using the Halo AR app by LightUp. Open the Halo AR app on your mobile device while keeping the cover in view and watch the augmented reality rise off the page. You can easily create similar augmented reality experiences for students using this app and others explored in this book." Page 4 of The Immersive Classroom
