My report on Augmented Reality for Smartphones is now open for comments here on the JISC Observatory blog. Some of the content has previously been previewed on this blog. Aimed at developers and content publishers who want to take advantage of the latest developments in smartphone and augmented reality (AR) technology, the report has an overview and comparison of different AR “browsers”, frameworks and publishing platforms. It also discusses emerging standards and usability issues and anti-patterns that developers should be aware of before designing an AR experience. And there is a section reviewing existing applications of AR in education that should inspire educators to give AR a bash. There is still a bit of time to incorporate some changes to the report so please do leave comments either here or on the JISC Observatory blog. If you are interested you might also be interested in the interactive session I’ll be giving on this at the Institutional Web Managers Workshop in July.
