Once you have received your poster and installed the app, come back to OpenLearn to complete step three
Step one: Get your free poster
If you haven't ordered your poster, you can do so now from our poster order page.
Once you have received it, open it out onto a flat surface or fix it to your wall.
Step two: Install the free Aurasma app
Download from Google Play
If you have an Android device, you can download the app from the Google Play Store.
Download from iTunes
If you have an Apple device, you can download the app from the iTunes Store.
ONCE YOU HAVE DOWNLOADED THE APP, YOU MUST RETURN TO THIS PAGE FOR STEP THREE IN ORDER TO ACTIVATE THE POSTER.
Step three: Launch the app with this link
Using your device on which you have installed the Aurasma app, follow this link to begin bringing your poster to life.
This will automatically subscribe you to the OpenLearn channel on Aurasma, and you only need to do this once. There is no need to create an account, simply press 'Skip' if prompted.
Please note: Aurasma is a free service, but your mobile operator may charge for the data you use on their network. If possible, we recommend launching the app using your WiFi connection. Please ask bill payer's permission before use.
Step four: Point and play
Point your device at the poster so that the majority of the poster fills the screen (it may take a moment for the app to recognise the poster).
Any animal accompanied with a star will be highlighted within a circle. Tap the animal to bring it to life. Enjoy!
Tip: Once a video is playing, if you want to move away from the poster simply tap the full-screen icon in the top left-hand side of the video.
Please note that the app is provided by Aurasma, an independent company and not directly by The Open University. Visit the Aurasma help forum to find support for any problems with the app.
