Contextualize Learning via Proximity with iBeacons
Indoor positioning and proximity-based contextualization are two of the latest features to hit mobile apps. We’ve been exploring applications for iBeacons in education. Most recently we’ve worked with the NC Museum of Natural Sciences on a project funded by IMLS to develop a museum navigation and guide app utilizing iBeacons to deliver a contextualized in-app experience supporting geo-aware interfaces and indoor wayfinding.
