This week sees delivery of the first in a series of sessions on Emerging Technologies from the Learning Technology Development Team:

QR Codes: Bridging paper and web?

Have you seen code blocks similar to this appearing in magazines, on signs, buses, business cards, or on just about any object about which people might need information? Have you wondered what they mean or how they can be read?



This 1 hour interactive workshop will introduce participants to the world of Quick Response (QR) Codes – these are 2D barcodes that can be scanned with a smart‑phone, iPod Touch or similar. QR codes are flexible – the information embedded in the code can contain just about any information you want – text, a web address, contact information or can even send a text message.

There are still places available, so if you want to find out how you could benefit by using QR-Codes follow this link to reserve your place:

  1. I attended this course yesterday. Having already seen a few examples of QR codes in adverts and on a dvd box, I had begun to wonder if I could incorporate this (new) technology into some of my teaching sessions. This session provided me with a further insight into the possible uses of QR codes.

    It was presented in a friendly and informative manner and Carol was keen and helpful with our queries.

    A very productive hour, thank you

  2. Very informative and useful session. Of course it’s use in HE will all depend on students’ phones.

    Thank you
