Abstract

The UK National Student Survey [6] proves that there is a clear and a strong desire for continuous feedback on students’ work as well as the inclusion of digital technologies. Students also need the opportunity to provide feedback on what they have learned so lecturers know whether their lecture is helping them to achieve the intended learning outcomes for the course. This provides a path to adapt the teaching methods where required (for instance spending more time on a particular topic if students are finding it difficult to understand).
To address our students’ concerns regarding timeliness of feedback and facilitate the ground for conversation and reflection, we developed a pilot project which proposes the inclusion of a novel augmented reality platform that supports students to develop better understanding of Electromagnetism while enabling a continuous formative assessment and feedback. The pilot was tested on 3rd year students of Electromagnetics. In this paper we will present the platform, the metrics to measure the impact of the platform as well as future developments.
