Preliminary Evaluation of Using Augmented Reality as a Dynamic Simulation Learning Tool for Linkage Mechanisms
Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that enables the users to visualize and interact with 3D virtual object, which is digitally processed and augmented in real time and environments. The use of AR in education has a wide potential of providing learners with a new type of learning material, and it has the capability to enrich the learning experience; especially in learning the kinesthetic and dynamics subjects in Engineering Mechanisms Courses. In order to support various teacher-student interaction scenarios by improving the understanding/visualization process, the authors implement a dynamic simulation tool using augmented reality for the Four-Bar Linkage mechanisms (4BL) engineering problem.
