Support of digital technology does not allow us to see that traditional media is an interactive media but it permits interactive media guidance. Newspapers, books, and magazines, which are located in the category of traditional media, support readers by directing them to interactive media with augmented reality applications. Augmented reality applications in printed materials has been used in many fields. In particular, course books, which protects the existence as the basic learning material of distance learning, can support its content with augmented reality applications. The features of augmented reality applications that allow the presentation of additional information, such as visual, audio, animated text, are discussed in this chapter.
