The Holocopter research project was a collaborative initiative with support from BCIT, SFU, Centre for Digital Media, and UBC. It involved the study of an augmented reality software application designed to demonstrate the flight dynamics of a helicopter rotor head, as part of the Aerospace Maintenance Engineer (AME) program at BCIT. This included examining the student learning experience, their conceptual understanding of flight dynamics after using the application, and their insights regarding its usage and effectiveness. The software application, the research and results of the study will be openly licensed, to support the broader community in using these resources for learning, teaching, and future research.
