Abstract

Hannes Kaufman (1996) claims that due to advances in the development of pedagogical concepts, applications and technology, the use of small scale or mobile immersive virtual or augmented reality systems could become feasible for educational institutions within this decade. One of the approaches how to practice computers in education are computer- based simulations and visualizations of various natural phenomena. The problem of such simulations is on how to decrease the gap between the real world and the abstract models which are used in simulations. The students have sometimes difficulties with understanding abstract visualisations even if they are presented in 3D space. The most frequent solution to this problem is found in some educational movies where the real life phenomena are presented and some abstract or virtual information is mixed to such sequences. Augmented reality seems particularly well suited with the current educational needs especially for early childhood education as it overlays information onto real world scene. In this project, I developed a mentoring system which uses markerless Augmented Reality in the aim of providing an interactive learning process to the students in order to better enhance their understanding on Eclipse.
