Learning about augmented reality

QR codes suddenly popped up in Reid Hall during Spring Term 2012, after students in ‘Digital Media and Society’ studied how the codes can be used to augment reality. 

Under deadline, they quickly researched some of the physical ‘realities’ of Reid Hall and posted the information to their blogs. One student even made a YouTube video with an iPad she’s using as part of the course.  They then used QR code generators to make the codes that link to the digital content.  Reid Hall visitors can scan the codes with their phones or iPads to access the posts. 

In other assignments, the students have also created:
  • animations on technological determinism (here, here, and here)
Still to come are videos on technology and change at Washington and Lee, and research on digital media content.
