dig_media Introduction:
Human beings have always thought about their future and the repercussions of technological advances that it brings. Some of the ideas that old "futurists" used to consider science fiction have since become part of our day-to-day world.  One of the latest advents in technology is Augmented Reality, along with Artificial Intelligence. Augmented Reality is essentially taking a view of the real world, and overlaying computer-generated data on top of it.  We can find examples of Augmented reality in movies for years and were costly and time consuming to produce. However, now we can produce Augmented reality applications in seconds and on a regular PC. We can now find applications in retail, education, medicine and other fields that help humanity in its never-ending quest for knowledge. To create augmented reality 3D projects that seem to leap off the anchors from different viewing angles is an amazing accomplishment in itself. To create such projects, students have to push their boundaries of creativity and skills. These skills can be learned by anybody, allowing students to feel successful. 
Overview: This module is a primer in Augmented Reality. During these six weeks, students learn to create their own augmented reality pieces to aid themselves and other students. Using free apps that are readily available for most smart phones, students learn to create augmented reality pieces that suit their needs. These pieces can be used to help others who are struggling in class or to create a more interactive learning environment in their classroom or life in general. Augmented reality adds another dimension to learning that is both easy to make and fun for all to use. Such a foundation will enhance their prospects for pursuing higher education in media technology.
