Virtual Enhancements to Physical Spaces: A QR Code Based Orientation Game

Vanessa Dennen, Shuang Hao, Sungwoong Lee and Taehyeong Lim

University orientations typically involve a long day – or days – of presentations and tours. The people who are being oriented are often passive participants, listening to talks about people, facilities, and opportunities while sitting in a lecture hall or similar location. In this presentation, we share one department’s technology-based enhancement to orientation. Rather than have our new students sit in a room for yet another hour, listening to key points about our program and facilities, in 2012 we opted to engage them in a collaborative, exploratory QR-code based game that incorporated videos of key people and explanations of major resources situated directly within their physical spaces. We will present the game framework, a demo of how it worked, and the augmented reality walkthrough of facilities that has been developed for the 2013 iteration along with results of a post-activity evaluation.
