New MOOC brings the water cycle to life

A new ‘massive open online course’ (MOOC) launching this month is set to showcase the ways augmented reality (AR) technology can help bring learning to life. 

The course, developed in partnership between Canvas Network and Zappar comes in response to huge user demand for AR in the classroom, which Zappar reports has tripled in two years (from 11% to 29%)1.

The MOOC will offer an innovative way for teachers and students aged 8 years and up to explore ‘the water cycle’, grounding a theoretical subject in an authentic, tangible and visual way. Young learners under the age of 13 must submit a signed parent consent form in order to enrol and fully participate in the course.
