Abstract

The mEQUITY (Project Website, http://mequity.dipseil.net/) project is the European Union funded initiative to create mobile applications that use augmented reality and multimedia assets adapted for educational purposes amongst disadvantaged groups in Jordan including those having difficulty with housing or employment and typically having refugee status related to neighbouring conflict zones of Gaza and Syria. Within these groups, there is also additional focus in helping those with learning difficulties or having disabilities such as deafness, blindness or physical immobility. Development and adaptation of educational digital resources for mobile devices have been initiated within higher education institutions, such as Jordanian Universities, with the aim of improving engagement and retention of learners.
