Abstract

Teaching and learning electromagnetism concepts, due their abstraction, need ways to provide more clarity to the student. The drawing or projection of static pictures (flat or in perspective) on the blackboard or screen has been the most traditional way of teaching this topic. However, with the advances in computer science and the availability of low cost computers, some alternatives using virtual reality and augmented reality have emerged. These alternatives are shown as major supporters to the learning process and transform what was once something only imagined, from a drawing, into something tangible, practical and accessible to the student's personal experimentation. In this paper, it is presented an augmented reality application supporting teaching electromagnetism concepts. The student can make experiments with an electric circuit and also has the option to be instructed by an audio tutor that explains the effects of his interactions on the circuit.
