    Background

    Heavner Hall is a University of Florida academic building that was under construction at the beginning of this research. In order to provide background information to the participants, use the following video link.

    Research Protocol

    The research protocol divides the number of students participating into three equal groups.

    Informed Consent

    Participation in the research requires collection of an Institutional Research Board (IRB) informed consent form signed by each participant.

    Pre- and Post-tests were developed to evaluate student learning using augmented reality (AR) techniques. The pre-test was administered before showing the video and the post-test was administered after showing the video.

    The areas of construction explored were:
