An Initial Design of the Mei Garden Augmented Reality Tour-Guide System Based on the Needs Analysis
In this study, we aim to build an AR tour guide system for visitors to support just-in-time experiential learning based on the needs analysis resulted from an online survey. Totally we collected 261 valid responses for analysis and then we modify the original design of the system to meet the target users’ exceptions. Consequently, the highlights of the system are proposed below: 1. A panda avatar will be designed into this system as the tour guide. 2. Some gamification will be designed into the system. 3. There would be an online community developed. We aim to connect the real world and the virtual one to provide more vivid information and thus the users can have fun to interact with virtual objects to enhance their visiting experiences and interests.
