Japanese Communication Language is one of the subject that offered by the UPSI which can be optionally taken as credit or audit class by UPSI’s students. It can be said as a new subject or language for the students because they not frequently use it in their daily life. In Japanese Communication Language class, it consists of three levels with different learning contents. Students can only take the next level after they pass their current level.
In order to help the students easily learn the Japanese’s phonetic written character which is Hiragana, an AR technology was applied to it. The design of the learning process is focused on the Hiragana characters which include writing, spelling and supported by examples.
The teaching and learning process will become more effective as users can simply use their mobile devices to scan at the character marker based by using the flash card, then the writing, spelling and example will pop out. Therefore, people will be encouraged and become more attracted in learning Hiragana.
This project is intended to develop a mobile app with the combination of Augmented Reality (AR). The development of AR mobile apps was specially for the students who take the Japanese Communication Language class in Sultan Idris Education University (UPSI).
