Lead by Dr Andrew Sherlock, School of Engineering, the Centre for Research in Digital Education will contribute to this project to improve understanding of teaching, learning and assessment through augmented and mixed reality.

Augmented Reality (AR) allows digital content to be overlaid onto the physical environment, typically on devices such as glasses, tablets and smartphones.   More recently, semi-immersive Mixed Reality (MR) devices, usually headsets (e.g. Microsoft Hololens), allow 3D holograms to be placed in the physical environment.
