Why is Augmented Reality not Mainstream in Learning?

Augmented reality technology has been around for over a decade now, and there is a lot of talk about its promise and applications. In this post, we would like to survey our readers to discover why augmented reality is not a mainstream technology in learning. We offer four reasons we have heard around the industry. Please feel free comment and let us know where you are on this issue. 

A.      There is not enough awareness about where AR can really help 
B.      It is expensive to build AR applications
C.      Technology expertise is not widespread (not enough know-how)
D.      AR tools have not evolved to meet the needs of the e-learning market
