This paper reviews the types of mobile Augmented Reality (mAR) interface being utilized in various applications such as education, advertisement, production, tourism and other applications. The objective of this paper is to examine the limitations on the types of mAR when they are used in higher education in terms of interaction between learning, teaching and instructional design. Based on the review, it can be concluded that there is an insufficient mAR interface being used in viewing the augmented images for classroom learning. For example, there are only two interfaces found that is being applied in the current mAR education applications. A comparative review presented in this paper suggests the appropriate mAR interface that can be implemented in education that could possibly enhance the learning outcomes.
