QR codes, for those not in the know, are like barcodes for URLs. Your smartphone or tablet can ‘read’ the QR code using a scanning app.
They provide a really quick and easy way of mixing the ‘real world’ with the virtual.
You could use them in lectures to send students to surveys or online resources, or in workshops to link them through to video guides.
If you have a weblink for it, you can turn it into a QR code (much easier to access than a fiddly URL!).

P.S…. To be able to ‘read’ a QR code you will need to have a QR scanner app on your phone or tablet, search for ‘QR scanner’ in your app store to find one – there are lots of free ones available.
