Abstract

This study contributes to enhancing students’ learning experience and increasing their understanding of complex issues by incorporating an augmented reality (AR) mobile application (app) into a sewing workshop in which a threading task was carried out to facilitate better learning relative to a conventional approach. Participants included 46 freshmen. One group of students was provided with a handout, while the other was asked to view an AR video. Questionnaires were then administered, and the results showed a significant difference between the two groups in terms of their understanding of the task. This finding was consistent with the post-test scores and the time required to learn the threading task. Several feedback items indicated higher learning efficiency with the use of AR videos.
