What is the cost for a Blippbuilder license?
We grant free licenses to educators, offering three months free access to Blippar’s powerful creation tool Blippbuilder.
What is the duration of an education license?
The free education license expires after three months. The paid license is active for educators to have access to Blippbuilder for a year.
How many blipps can I create?
Educators can create unlimited blipps, using all of Blippbuilder’s features.
Can I publish my blipps?
Educational blipps cannot be published. You need to issue a ‘code’ to your students, which must be entered into their devices in order for them to view the content.
We recommend that you save all created content in a single ‘campaign’, as this allows you to issue a single, unifying ‘campaign code’ that students can use to unlock all of your blipps. Using this approach, students only have to enter the code on their device once, and it will never have to be changed. Furthermore, the Blippar app saves the code even after the app has been closed, meaning that it only has to be entered once.
Can I make my school’s promotional materials blippable?
The free education license is limited to teaching applications, and precludes any form of institutional marketing or promotion.
Please reach out to Blippar for Education for more information on commercial Blippbuilder licenses (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Can my students use Blippbuilder?
Yes, you are free to create Blippbuilder accounts for your students. Students require their own account if they want to create blipps on Blippbuilder.
Students also need to download the Blippar app on their mobile device in order to view the content created on Blippbuilder.
Can my colleagues use Blippbuilder?
When an account has been created for a school or college, the first registered user becomes an administrator for that group. As administrator, you can then freely add additional members to the group, both faculty and students.
How do I access Blippbuilder?
Blippbuilder is a cloud-based tool, so you just need an up-to-date browser. On rare occasions, school firewalls may block Blippbuilder. It’s completely safe for you to use, so speak to your IT administrator to unblock your access.
What are 'assets'? How do I create assets for my blipp?
Assets are the content features of your blipp – images, videos, and icons – that make your learning materials interactive. Blippbuilder comes with a bank of pre-loaded icons that you can use.
Alternatively, you can create custom icons using third-party platforms such as Adobe
Photoshop or Microsoft PowerPoint, and upload them to your asset library on Blippbuilder to make the blipp uniquely your own. For more information, see our asset guidelines.
Can I upload 3D assets to Blippbuilder?
Currently it is not possible to work with 3D assets in Blippbuilder, but we’re working on it!
What makes a good image marker?
The more complex the image, the easier it is for Blippar to recognise the marker. Images with a lot of contrast tend to work very well, while flat or monochromatic images may not work.
Is there a limit to the size of a blipp?
There isn’t a defined size limit for a blipp. However, blipps that contain many sequences and embedded assets may become slow to load on the Blippar app. One way to reduce the size of a blipp is to resize the individual assets you are using. For example, if you resize an image in Photoshop and upload it again to your asset library on Blippbuilder, it will reduce the size of your blipp.
