Augmented Reality Support

The Teacher app supports viewing augmented reality (USDZ) files. When an instructor taps a link to a USDZ file, they can select to open that file in augmented reality by tapping the Augment Reality button. This allows users to preview objects and place them in augmented reality using Apple’s AR Quick Look tool.

I think a lot of us (most of us?) would benefit from being able to add, edit and modify the settings of modules via the mobile app.  Is this planned for a future release?

Will augmented reality be supported within the Android apps?

Hi cwindsor@acm.ac.uk,

I am not aware of additional updates to modules that are planned for releases in the near future. However, the team is always open to customer feedback when looking for features to add or improve. You can share those ideas here: Ideas

Thanks for your comment!

Hi ewest@colum.edu,

Currently AR files cannot be opened in the Android app. It should display an Open with... button so users can view these files with other applications they may have installed on their device. I'm not aware of any plans to change that at this time.

Is Apple Pencil 2 support only in the SpeedGrader app, or is it all in Teacher? I can't seem to get Teacher to accept input …
