Going Global with AR

Do you want to create AR vignettes that can be viewed by anyone in the world? Participants in this session will learn to use Aurasma Pro Studio (free; account required) to create their own Aurasma channels and populate them with globally accessible auras. Participants will need to bring their own laptops (global auras cannot be created on a mobile device at this time) AND their own iOS or Android mobile device for viewing their (and others') auras. This is a followup session to Getting Started with AR.
