Augmented reality (AR) is a technology to supplement existing reality with additional information, descriptions and helpful images with the help of technology and therefore ensure the reality to be perceived more qualified and well-rounded. In this study, views and comments about problems, solutions and suggestions on using AR were gathered from researchers who accomplished an applied study on AR. The phenomenological design, in qualitative framework, was used in the study. The purpose of the study is to investigate direct experiencers views on AR technologies. We tried to find out answer the following questions about augmented reality applications: "On which target group could it be used more effectively?," "On which learning domain (cognitive, affective, psychomotor) could it be more influential?," "Which teaching and learning methods could it be used with?," "What are the problems encountered during design, development and application process?," "What are the subject fields that need to be considered for using it more effectively in educational sciences field?," "In which situations could it be used for education?," and "How should it be designed?" According to the results, suggestions are presented about technical concerns, learning materials and instructional methods for developers, educators, and feature researchers for using AR effectively in education.
