Projects

GEtiT
GEtiT (Gamified Training Environment for Affine Transformations) achieves an interactive gamified 3D-training of affine transformations by requiring users to apply their affine transformation knowledge in order to solve challenging puzzles presented in an immersive and intuitive 3D environment.
VARyFAST
The project aims at the development of teaching sequences that can be flexibly combined to form new courses or integrated into existing courses to expand competencies with regard to using VR and AR.
Horst - The Teaching Frog
Horst - The Teaching Frog is a tangible AR system targeting the learning of a frog’s Anatomy. The learning environment is based on a plushfrog containing removable markers. Detecting the markers, replaces them with 3D models of the organs.
LEED - Die Zukunft des MINT Lernens
The project aims at the use of Virtual (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) in STEM teaching and at exploring the pedagogical potentials of Tangible AR.
Wassermühle VR
Wassermühle VR is a virtual learning environment for learning about history. The virtual environment is based on a medieval watermill and teaches users about the life of people of that time.
