VR Tools – A Free Open-source Platform for Virtual and Augmented Reality Applications on the Web
Keywords:virtua reality, augmented reality, educational platform
This paper aims to introduce a free educational web platform that offers a repository for viewing interactive content, using Computer Graphics (CG), Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) resources. The platform provides curatorship for third party and copyright projects. Within the scope of this research, two projects of the platform were subject to a qualitative evaluation. The evaluation carried out focused on the analysis of the motivating potential of using the platform during the distance teaching-learning process. It was possible to collect positive evidence about its viability for use in supporting both presential and remote learning.
