Day 15: ImagineAR Studio
One of the new studios that allow students and teachers to create augmented reality is ImagineAR. The web-based studio is available on a computer or Chromebook. The simple steps guide the user to select the experience, add the trigger image (if applicable), layer with a 3D object, video or picture, and publish for others to view. Unlike most other platforms, once it's published, anyone can view it without following a channel.
Some of the experiences are available for free including trigger-based or location-based AR. Two premium features are the AR location-based scavenger hunts and sweepstakes. After publishing content, share the trigger image with your class to see the content layers on top. A few 3D objects are available in the library, but the option to upload your own content is a great feature. View the full process in the video below and see what I layered on top of The Immersive Classroom book cover.
"This book features interactive content incorporated into each of the images so that you can truly experience the different tools and see the examples played out. These images (AR triggers) link to bonus content, 3D objects, and videos that provide additional support and a way to engage further in the material." page 3 of The Immersive Classroom
