Awareness of Quick Response codes in an educational environment

Monday 2:30pm - 3:00pm, CITRENZ (CITRENZ 1 Room)

Quick Response Codes (QR codes) provide a means of encoding information into a matrix barcode, suitable for ‘reading’ and decoding by a wide range of devices, including cell phones and computing tablets. QR codes provide a means to direct computer users, especially those using smartphones, tablets and other such mobile devices, to information or Internet resources. This paper examines the properties that underlie the technology, and investigates QR code awareness and use by students in a tertiary educational institution. Possible implementations relevant to a tertiary environment are also discussed. QR codes may provide some exciting and interesting opportunities to ‘add value’ to the polytechnic experience. However, it is important to determine the potential levels of use by the target market – generally young, computer-savvy and smartphone-using learners
