UTAUT model for the use of Augmented Reality in education and training

The Institute of Public Administration, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia


Abstract: Since practically all sectors – from the education sector to the healthcare sector and the military one – are embracing Augmented Reality (AR) for the help it can provide in the context of specific training, Augmented Reality (AR) has played a significant part in revolutionising the present-day learning processes. For example, as it increases the proficiency and accuracy of students and surgeons, it plays a crucial role in enhancing the overall effectiveness of the learning processes. However, even if time efficiency, cost savings, and the simplicity of training techniques are only a few advantages of using AR, this application also comes along with its share of difficulties, as more and more industries have started utilising the AR technology. In any case, it has undoubtedly enhanced virtual reality and the incorporation of real-time events in learning through augmented reality and virtual simulation. This article focuses on the topic of AR and assesses user acceptance of the application of augmented reality in the context of learning and training by using the UTAUT Technology Acceptance Model.

Keywords: User Acceptance Model, Augmented Reality, Learning, Training.
