Content Analysis of Used Augmented Reality Applications in Turkey and Abroad Towards Researches in Higher Education Institutions



The aim of this study is to examine the work done on the augmented reality in higher education in Turkey and abroad. For this purpose, 47 articles in Eric and Academic Search Complete databases, 1 article in Ulakbim database and 11 articles in YÖK thesis scanning engine were reached and 55 of these articles were accessed. The researches were investigated by researchers in terms of research method, sample sizes, learning areas, AR techniques used, data collection tools and dependent variables. Investigations by space to frequency and percentage table of the data obtained as a result of comparisons are made for research carried out in Turkey and abroad. According to the obtained data; Turkey is the most mixed methods, which uses quantitative research methods abroad, to be among the most preferred 30-100 value of the sample size, Turkey in 5 studies in different areas of learning while playing abroad is carried out studies in 10 areas, most preferred AR technology for mobile augmented reality technology, data collection was also used as a result of frequent use of questionnaires and success and attitude dependent variables being the most preferred dependent variables.
