*EpidermisAR is an Augmented Reality app designed for use on the Masters of Pharmacy (MPharm) and BSc in Pharmaceutical Science, Technology and Business courses at Keele University. It detects images printed on labels (supplied free of charge to our students) to display a 3D model of human skin, with a focus on the stratum corneum and the routes which drugs may take when diffusing across the skin. This app may be used as part of the educational programme we offer our students.*
*Search for ‘EpidermisAR’ on your app store to download this app and print this target to see for yourself. The target can be printed at different sizes if you'd like to place it on the back of your hand to see the full effect.*
This app has been designed to be used as a learning tool for As Level Chemistry and Biology students for use in a research Keele University research project that aims to evaluate the effectiveness of Augmented Reality in science education.
The app works with a set of printed playing cards that are available to Chemistry and Biology students at the Keele University School of Pharmacy website.
By scanning each card, information about each topic will appear as well as a 3D model for reference. Certain cards become interactive when brought close together. For information on which cards have additional functions scan the cards and read the associated descriptions.
This app has been designed to form part of our revision tools for our students on our Masters in Pharmacy course and BSc in Pharmaceutical Science, Technology and Business as well as Biology and Chemistry 6th form courses.
