Course outline

This course will provide an overview about the media technology Augmented Reality (AR) and about Gamification in the first half of the semester. In the second half our students will cooperate with the MET Engineers of the 4th semester, working together in several perspectives (Concept, Interface Design, User Experience, Graphic Design, Media Design, Animation) on realising a video game.

Objectives & Structure

The lectures of the first half of the semester give a briefing for the project and an overview about mainly the AR technology and several AR concepts. In those primarily theoretical lessons the students will learn to develop and explain a concept for a meaningful application of AR in the context of “Games” and useful “Tools” . This means to research, find and analyse potential fields of needs, which could be solved with AR solutions. The subsequent technical part is the understanding and arranging of current and fitting AR technologies. This means the usage of mashup technology mainly for mobile devices as well as the modifying of several AR technologies. As practical output a prototype (made in Adobe XD) is expected.

In the second half, the cooperation semester, our Designers will learn to work under real life conditions in terms of team work and cooperation, common briefings and discussions of concepts, as well as check up meetings and solution finding within the concept process.
