Technology is regularly used in an effort to increase student engagement and thought to improve student outcome (Mayer, 2005).

There are many examples of Augmented Reality being used to enhance learning, specifically in medical training. AR trails are being used by a number of organisations for tourism and knowledge exchange, however there is little research on the effect AR trails have on student engagement and attainment.

This project was created to see the response to the trail, and to gauge how effective it was in facilitating learning.
