Abstract—Museums are ideal informal learning environments.
This study develops an augmented reality (AR) system (APP and
management platform) for visitors to actively explore learning
resources in museum. There are three main parts of the system,
public mode (for adults), child mode (for elementary or high
school students), and backend management platform (for
museum manager). To arouse visitors’ motivation, this study
adopts problem-based learning (PBL) as main theory base of the
system. Along with iBeacon indoor positioning technology, the
AR (augmented reality) is adopted to display questions (inspire
visitors thinking and interaction) nearby the exhibition items. In
this sense, the learning may actually happen in museums.
Index Terms—Augmented reality, learning in museum, problem-based learning, iBeacon, indoor positioning.
