Here’s a short walkthrough of how you can use Captum
The days of students getting excited over the television cart and VCR being rolled into the classroom might be over as we enter the digital age, but video is here to stay in classrooms around the globe.
Captum will give you the opportunity to combine traditional teaching tools such as posters, worksheets, slideshows and diagrams with a video – giving you the power to do more, and link videos of lessons, explanations, supplemental help and other related topics to instructional materials.
Through augmented reality, or AR, your instructional materials have the ability to act as scannable targets to play a video.
How can Captum AR work in education?
With Captum, all that you will need is the Captum app and a target and video of your choice. Any static item – such as a worksheet, diagram, poster, or image – will do, and you can use an existing video or record one through the app.
The Captum app will walk you through the process, from uploading your video to positioning your target and finalizing your experience. You will even have the option to attach links for more information, such as a helpful website or an email address to reach you.
Why should you use AR in the classroom?
A 2012 study by the Royal Academy of Engineering, a respected higher-education organization in the United Kingdom, showed that there is strong evidence that digital videos can inspire and engage students through increased student motivation to learn, higher grades, and development of learner autonomy… among other benefits.
Captum can help you increase the learning of your students by creating AR experiences with your instructional materials. Students can also demonstrate what they’ve learned by using Captum to create their own AR experiences.
