QR codes are scannable, square barcodes that allow you to quickly access websites, images, or texts.
A Quick Response (QR) code is a type of barcode that can be scanned by mobile device cameras. Once scanned, the barcode automatically generates a text or directs you to an online link. QR codes provide a quick and easy way to direct learners to contents without the need to type a long web address.
