Remote Assistance App Powered by Augmented Reality
Vuforia Chalk delivers a unique communication experience enabled by the Vuforia augmented-reality platform. The app combines advanced augmented-reality collaboration tools with real-time video communications to connect students with their teacher or other educator so they can both see and discuss the instruction at hand.

Developed by PTC, the Vuforia Chalk app for iOS and Android enhances troubleshooting and support beyond simple “see what I see” apps. Cost: Free
