Multi-viewpoint Smartphone AR-based Learning System for Solar Movement Observations
Keywords:Smartphone Augmented Reality, Solar Observation, Solar Diurnal Motion, 3D Content.
Understanding solar movement (e.g., solar diurnal motion) is difficult for those are beginning to learn about astronomy. Previous research has revealed that observation-based learning can help make astronomical phenomena clearer to understand for such learners. In this research, Smartphone Augmented Reality (AR) technology and 3D content were used to develop a multi-viewpoint Smartphone AR-based learning system (M-VSARLS) for solar movement observations that can be used in the real-world environment. The goal of this research is to assess the usefulness of the system, usability of the AR function and 3D content, and the overall effect of the system on the learner’s motivation through task-based experiments with follow-up questionnaires. The results show that the M-VSARL system is effective in improving the observational skills and learning ability of learners, and in enhancing their motivation to learn about solar movement.
