18:00     Demo Session

Michael Hobbs & Debbie Holley (Anglia Ruskin University, UK)

This is a hands on demonstration of how we can use of Augmented Reality in learning and teaching. We will be showing a very simple freely available application ‘aurasma’ that uses a tablet or smart phone camera to allow short clips of user generated media to be triggered by viewing real world objects or images. The combined image is shown on the camera viewfinder mixing the real image with an overlaid media or animation. As well as trying out our own demonstrations you can use your own device to download Aurasma (from google play or apple app store) and create your own ‘Auras’. You will need an internet connection and the ability to install an app on your device

Nicoletta Adamo-Villani (Purdue University, USA)

We will demo the Information Assurance (IA) game, a role-playing serious game designed to introduce undergraduate students to secure coding concepts. Users will be able to interact with the game and browse the accompanying laboratory exercises. The game is funded by the National Science Foundation and is a collaborative project between Purdue and Stanford University.


Stefano Bianchi (Softeco Sismat, Italy)

The TELL ME project ( presents a Hands-on Live Demonstrator for vocational training, showcasing the learning process required to perform fault check and replacement of broken modules on a control box. Attendees will experience different types of training resources: from plain web-based visualization of the job card – enriched with explicative photos and videos – up to an interactive Augmented Reality App (Android) guiding the trainee with overlayed instructions, through the possibility of being guided by a hands-free Interactive Job Card Mobile App (Android).
