AR4 Education – no coding

There are several platforms to create Augmented Reality (AR), and each one of them are good in a specific area. There are applications that are good for facial recognition, 3D animations for objects, others in Android platform, IOS, etc. For this reason, we should experiment with different platforms of augmented reality.
In this website you can take free classes to learn how to use different software to design AR experiences and these classes are focus on AR tool without coding.

The AR Classes

These are the classes that you can take and software that you can learn.
All these classes are free and start from scratch.

Adobe Aero
Adobe Aero
THE ADOBE OPTION FOR IOS DEVICES

Class requirements

All these classes are free, but you need a device such as a tablet or smartphone that you can use to preview the examples.
If you don’t have a compatible device you can use a simulator, in the class I am going to show you how to figure it out.
