AETMA Lab had a significant presence at this year’s Industrial Informatics Festival (i2fest), held at Karvali, Kavala, 6-14 October 2017, as part of the KAVALAEXPO, the most important commercial exhibition in the Eastern Macedonia and Thrace region.
Three platforms developed by AETMA Lab were presented, namely ARTutor (a platform to create AR books), mLearn (a system to manage and conduct educational field trips) and ARIATIS (an application which uses AR to present cultural content in airports), and have attracted interest by the exhibition’s visitors as well as by teachers and students from visiting schools.
In addition, a demonstration of the mLearn platform has been arranged for the 1st Technical high school of Drama in collaboration with their teacher, Christos Samaras. In the mLearn web platform, an educational field trip was created, and educational material for two of the exhibits has been uploaded. QR codes for these exhibits have been created and placed next to these exhibits in advance. The students have been in instructed to download the mLearn Android application the day before. Then, during their visit, the students scanned the QR codes and accessed the corresponding educational material. The demonstration has successfully shown the usefulness and the potential of the mLearn platform to both students and educators.
