PAL kicked off a new project on effective learning analytics for Augmented Reality learning apps, project LAAR, at the beginning of October, with partners from Belgium, Denmark, Germany, and Liechtenstein.

The goal of LAAR is to develop, pilot, and validate an exhaustive set of formative assessment exercises for AR-based vocational training, involving interactive, sequential learning exercises linked up with a directory of competencies (such as ESCO or ETTE). The reusable formative exercises provide direct, smart feedback to the learner, while at the same time enabling the development of summative analytics.
