    Abstract

    HoloMoL is a platform that helps us memorize different types of information by combining the method of loci memorization technique and mixed reality contents delivered through Microsoft HoloLens. This paper presents an overview of HoloMoL's design concept and implementation. To further understand our approach, we started by carrying out an exploratory study to investigate its usability aspects. Beside various interaction insights, results mainly indicated that participants utilized multiple memorization techniques that they thought worked best for intended information. Furthermore, we present some discussions about a participatory design workshop to exploit HoloMoL use cases. The results indicated a wider range of possible HoloMoL applications beyond learning and simple memorization. Additionally, the different methods for memorizing information found in this study offer insights for developing new services based on the method of loci.
