ABSTRACT

In the first part of this paper are presented a set of educational characteristics of some teaching systems based on augmented reality technology. Next sections presents some results from the user testing of an augmented reality technology adapted for biology and chemistry study in the scholar environment. The evaluation was focussed on effectiveness and efficiency measures of users who tested the augmented reality platform developed in ARiSE (Augmented Reality in School Environment) project. These results where determined based on analysis of log files for each user. In parallel with this activity, before and after testing sessions, has been evaluated those student’s knowledge at biology and chemistry which are related on the specific tasks of didactical scenario in augmented reality platform. By comparing the level of student’s knowledge before and after working with augmented reality platform, we tried to determine the eventually formative valences associated with this new technology. The results show that students achieved much better performances to the knowledge tests after working with augmented reality platform (ARTP). Therewith the quantitative measures obtained from log files analysis offered useful information regarding usability problems and task-solving behavior.
