This study investigates the impact of an augmented reality learning environment on motivation. In the in-service training Creative Multimedia Technology, teachers were introduced to the principles of designing educational videos. The participants were introduced to the topic in hands-on activities: They used their smartphones to turn static pictures into animated ones. After this input, they participated in the German adaptation of the survey Intrinsic Motivation Inventory and rated the educational video types. Then they implemented their newly acquired knowledge and skills to produce their own teaching videos. The evaluation of the questionnaire shows that the AR learning environment can promote intrinsic motivation. Thus, the produced videos impressively show that the basic principles for video design were put successfully into practice.
