Abstract

EnredaMadrid took place in the city of Madrid at the end of 2011 with the objective of teaching the history of the 17th-century Madrid to participants in the activity. Using mobile devices, participants could learn the history of the city with the help of a mobile application based on geolocalisation and augmented reality (AR). EnredaMadrid was part of a formal higher education environment, where some students could acquire 1 ECTS credit from a National Distance University in Spain. The article describes the educational and technological variables of the experience in detail. It also provides, through the analysis of an opinion survey, some insights on the value of this experience as a valid tool not only to learn history as the main purpose, but also to acquire technological competencies. This conclusion was proven in the satisfaction survey conducted among the participants, as well as the comparative advantages brought about by the use of online platforms and AR systems in the learning process.
