This demonstration aims to construct an interactive multimedia learning platform for ecology education, which allows young children to learn interactively through the virtual reality of digital media. This enhanced learning experience integrates augmented reality (AR) and Arduino features, and utilizes digital animation design software and 3D technologies to design a sequence of AR markers based on the growth of plants. Learners can use a webcam to capture AR marker information and generate three-dimensional objects and media on-screen. With changes or angle tilt of the AR marker, users can interact directly with the 3D objects and learn about plant growth through this virtual reality platform.
