National Institute for Research and Development in Informatics – ICI Bucharest

Abstract: This paper presents an integrated methodology for assessing a teaching-learning platform based on technology augmented reality developed in the European project ARiSE (Augmented reality in the school environment). The first part of the paper presents a brief introduction to the issue of augmented reality technology. The following sections address the evaluation of educational applications and detailed presentation of the integrated methodology for assessing the learning platform. The paper ends with conclusions and directions for future work.

Keywords: augmented reality, mixed method evaluation.
