about: ARiSE (Augmented Reality in School Environments) developed an augmented-reality-teaching platform for school classes.

Existing augmented reality technology for museums was adapted to the everyday learning environment of teachers and students. The platform provided 3D visual augmentation of real objects and sound and have been integrated with a multi-media database and an e-learning tool. ARiSE promoted team work, collaborative learning and communication between students, classes and schools, even across country borders. The teaching platform supported this on the technical level by providing remote collaboration and communication functionalities.
