The inspiration for this project came when we saw small children struggling to sit in front of the gadgets for almost 8 hours for online classes, straining their eyes during the pandemic . This is when we realized that we need a platform where students can learn and find studying interesting at the same time.
What it does
It is actually a unique platform where students can learn using AR. AR i.e augmented reality is a good way to render real world information and present it in an interactive way so that the virtual elements become a part of the real world. We have used extensions for students who are colour-blind which will help them identify colours more accurately. The website blocker and the pomodone helps students prevent themselves from getting distracted while studying and keep a track of their success. It is an amazing platform for student-teacher interaction online.
How I built it
It was built through programming and machine learning to help train our data.We have used HTML , CSS and bootstrap for building the website. AFrame was used to build the AR gallery. We went through a lot of resources , documentations and tutorials to learn and implement things in our project.
Challenges I ran into
It was a bit challenging to manage our time wisely as there were many features we wanted to add and see in our idea. Also, being in different time zones made it more difficult to communicate and work on tasks together.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Putting the site online and making it work!!! I’m proud of how much effort my team has put into this idea and for my team members taking the time to explain to me concepts I was more curious about.
What I learned
We learnt a lot of new things. Enhancing our skills in HTML , CSS, JS, Python and more. We here mainly worked as a team and understood our responsibilities in the assigned tasks.
What's next for Learn with Augmented Reality
Our next steps are to launch and implement this platform for students and teachers to use for online learning as well as updating the features according to what students and teachers are looking for in order to make online learning much easier for everyone.
