The path to cre­ative learn­ing ap­pli­ca­tion at Ma­zoon Col­lege

Times of Oman - - ROUND-UP -

MUS­CAT: Ma­zoon Col­lege has taken a big leap for the ed­u­ca­tional out­reach by shift­ing from the tra­di­tional ed­u­ca­tional model in teach­ing and learn­ing to ad­vance mod­els cop­ing with the ad­vance tech­nol­ogy. One of these mod­els is the Aug­mented Re­al­ity.

The Re­search Cen­tre at Ma­zoon Col­lege has im­ple­mented the Aug­mented Re­al­ity ap­pli­ca­tion for the ed­u­ca­tional need of the stu­dents in Ma­zoon Col­lege for the first time. Dr Saleem Basha Mo­hamed Su­laiman, Head Re­search Cen­tre at Ma­zoon Col­lege, with his team de­vel­oped a pro­to­type of Aug­mented Re­al­ity ap­pli­ca­tion for ed­u­ca­tion dur­ing the first quar­ter of this aca­demic year 2018.

The ap­pli­ca­tion was in­tro­duced to the foun­da­tion pro­gramme stu­dents as a pi­lot project and was tested for three months. Af­ter analysing the re­sults and feed­back from the stu­dents, sev­eral cor­rec­tions and eval­u­a­tions were con­ducted.

Fi­nally, the ap­pli­ca­tion has reached its fi­nal ver­sion of the com­plete im­ple­men­ta­tion which is avail­able in Ap­ple store and Google Play store for the pub­lic use of the stu­dents.

As an ini­tial stage the Re­search Cen­tre has im­ple­mented Aug­mented Re­al­ity ap­pli­ca­tion for Gen­eral Foun­da­tion Depart­ment, Com­puter Science Depart­ment and English Depart­ment. The head of Re­search Cen­tre also states that the Aug­mented Re­al­ity is not the des­ti­na­tion for Ma­zoon Col­lege; it is the path­way to achieve the Holo­graphic Pro­jec­tion in the fu­ture ed­u­ca­tional model.

He as­sures that in the near fu­ture Ma­zoon Col­lege will be the first col­lege in Oman to ap­ply the Holo­graphic pro­jec­tion in ed­u­ca­tion.
