Abstract

Various fields of education have focused on augmented reality (AR), which can synthetically present virtual objects in real environments. This study examines the effects of utilizing AR learning equipment for synchronized model operation in astronomy education. The findings show that AR enhances the learning experience of students by synthetically presenting a Computer Graphic (CG) shadow on a Moon model as well as creating a CG Sun and background.
