Abstract
How can we better represent course content (for example, engineering components) that does not translate well into a paper-based medium? And how can we deliver this content without reliance on networks or online technologies? We propose that one solution to these questions is the use of augmented reality (AR). This working paper describes our journey of discovery as we investigate the possibilities of using AR technology to render 3D objects in paper-based course materials. This is not a technical document of the inner workings of AR technology but a description of the processes required to implement AR technology within Open Polytechnic courses. The project was conducted by an Open Polytechnic cross-discipline team, with participation from other work areas across the polytechnic.
