Abstract

Augmented reality (AR) has educational values which have been used for system development with the purpose of learning. In this paper, we present an AR system of learning the relationship of the earth revolving around the sun. This system was tested on 12-to-14-years-old students. We comprehended student satisfaction by using an AR system in the classroom. Student satisfaction was measured by Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), Informational System Success Model (ISS Model) and student satisfaction in learning. To understand learning achievement, students had pre and post tests respectively. The results showed that this AR system improved learning achievement; also, students had high satisfaction of this system. Besides, there was a positive relationship between technology (device) satisfaction and learning achievement.
