Course description:
Augmented reality (AR) - is the term used to describe augmentation of real-world spaces. Visual or audial content such as sounds, video clips, still images or graphics are integrated with the real-world environment via technology, like mobile phone or tablet. During this course we'll be looking into how to utilize this medium to create meaningful narratives and audiovisual content. How can AR be used to create site- or target specific content?

What kind of skills/training can students expect to achieve (learning outcome):
By testing and experimenting with various ideas and concepts, the students are able to perceive the expressive potential of augmented reality. The course will contain for example:  introductory lectures to familiarize the students with the subject, case studies, discussion, exercises and prototyping ideas, and a course project.
