An Augmented Reality of the Environment

An Augmented Reality of the Environment

I have always avoided going to the movies to watch sci-fi films, because I could not imagine a future where we all function as robots or spacemen. It is not that I had a limited imagination; it is just that I have always preferred stories based on reality. This may be the reason why Virtual Reality as a technology never appealed to me. I could never really comprehend the notion of an entirely fantasy world. However, as I stepped into the tech world, I was introduced to a technology grounded in reality that allows us to augment aspects of it; I was all ears even though this was not something entirely innovative for me. I have avidly been using filters provided by Snapchat and Instagram for a while now. I just never realized that this was Augmented Reality (AR)at work. Some of my favourite consumer brands like Ikea too have incorporated AR. I believe, however that the scope of AR is vast, exciting, and futuristically noble.

Moodle Mobile has been around for a while. It offers features that enable learners to view courses, track their progress, receive notifications, post in forums, submit assignments and also do all of this offline. Moodle was able to create a product that caters to the broad spectrum of mobile consumption, spanning both online and offline scenarios. That is indeed commendable. The app, rated 3.4 on Google Play, needs certain web-services to be activated on your Moodle installation. The latest Moodle installations come equipped with those services as well.
