Working with my EraScope team members, I engaged in a user research study to see who the likely users of the EraScope would be. to do so, my team and I conducted several in-depth interviews with history students, activists, and college and secondary school educators. We asked our respondents between five to ten questions in hope to gain insight on their interests in/knowledge of historical sights, place-based learning, and AR technology.
For the historical narrative aspect of the application, I helped find, write, and create the historical recollections for each of the sites supported in the application. Both my voice and my research assisted the audible and geographical story-telling within the augmented reality experience.
Using a bootstrap template, I single-handedly coded, designed, and maintained the EraScope project website using HTML/CSS and the skills I learned in the New Media Productions course.
