Abstract

Open and Distance Learning constantly seeks to enrich learning experiences and processes by trying out innovative technologies and brings forward the best practices. Among these innovative technologies, Augmented Reality, draws attention due to the interactivity it enables within learning environments. Augmented Reality allows for the integration of theory and practice, and offers the potential to deliver learning through open and distance practices on disciplines such as medicine and engineering, which were once deemed impossible through distance learning mechanisms. This article aims to provide brief information on Augmented Reality and discusses its potential in the field of education.
