Abstract


ICT4D is an emerging research field where researchers from multiple domains try to support human beings by improving their life. Lack of experienced teachers and limited educational infrastructure is a major issue with low literacy rate among developing countries. In this paper, we describe the design and development of e-learning software based on augmented reality. This prototype provides an interactive, informative and fun learning environment by embedding a graphical visualization generated by the computer using real world coordinates. This enhances a person’s ability to understand the surroundings better, by providing an overlay of information on real world patterns.The system will help students to interact with different objects and thus making learning fun. The availability of such systems in schools in developing countries enables teachers to motivate school going children to better learn about objects. As a next step we plan to roll out this prototype amongst school children and to understand the effectiveness of this system.
