In our previous blog posts, we introduced two custom-coded AR examples: a DNA web AR and BioChemAR, a mobile app-based system. In the third part of our AR blog post series, we will discuss a no-code solution for building AR experiences.
As life gets back to a new normal, so does the opportunity to collaborate with other technology-minded colleagues in Higher Education. And the place to do that this year was at the 2021 Educause Annual Conference in Philadelphia, PA.
Traditionally, macromolecular structures have been taught with 2D models that can limit students’ understanding of spatial 3D elements of molecules. BioChemAR is a mobile app that uses augmented reality to improve visualization.
We are excited to introduce a new version of Sakai each summer. While users explore the new features and familiarize themselves with this summer's update, we’d like to offer insight into the version upgrade process.
As we continue to transition to face-to-face teaching and learning, it’s helpful for faculty to pause and check in with their students on how things are going—what’s working well and what needs adjustment.
AI has come a long way from IBM's Deep Blue became the first computer to beat a chess champion when it defeated Russian grandmaster Garry Kasparov in 1997, but it is fair to say robots are not quite ready to take our jobs.
Electronic Lab Notebooks are, at their simplest, a digital version of the traditional bound paper notebook. ELNs can be useful for STEM and non-STEM fields alike, and ITS would love to partner with faculty to implement ELNs at Pomona.
While visual design can often take a back seat in planning a course, visuals can help to enhance learning when used correctly. This guide helps to break down some of the fundamentals of learning-focused visual design.
In preparation for the fall 2021 semester, we are introducing a new version of Sakai. This update comes with a variety of changes and improvements, all of which aim to make Sakai a user-friendly, intuitive, and helpful platform.
