What are QR Codes?
QR (which stands for quick response) codes are matrix barcodes that can be read by code readers and most camera phones. QR Codes can encode text, a URL, or other data. For this project, they are encoded with specific URLs and placed within the buildings that were part of the project. By using your camera phone or camera on your table computing device, you can scan one of the QR codes while you are exploring the campus and its buildings. The QR code will direct you to the relevant web pages associated with the building your are in. If you don’t have a QR code reader on your phone or tablet, you can download one from the “app” store. I suggest Qrafter – it’s free and easy to use.
