  • 6. Recommendations/Future Developments • Add ‘promotional’ information to packs before the event. • Actively promote app before the event. • Make all staff aware of the app and its potential uses, rather than a select few. • Ensure you have a good admin/data collection method. • Add admin function (CMS) to allow staff to add content, give them ‘ownership’. • Have default/example data to show staff what the app could look like with little effort. • Create a different incentives to scan a QR code based on the target audience (£25 Amazon voucher seemed to have little effect!). • Educate staff to what can be achieved with the app and the use of QR codes in their wider teaching.
  • 7. The LSRC QR web app • LSRC currently only has one printed book the students must share. • Each LSRC model used in the web app has its own QR code attached to its base. • System can potentially host content for all of the models in LSRC (200+). • Makes self directed learning more convenient. • Provides students a hub of specific and consistent materials in one place. • Easy for admins to manage and update using built in CMS.
  • 8. • Made with HTML5 (Using Bootstrap framework) whilst incorporating PHP and MySQLi for backend. • Responsive design (displays nice on everything). • Test existing knowledge with quiz mode. • Email content for later or to a colleague (print friendly). • Easy to use, no fuss navigation. • Search function to help find similar models.

  • 10. Future developments Necessary improvements… • Import full model label content from existing Excel doc. • Make better use of tablet screen size (display differently to mobiles). • Smarter integration with external resources (currently takes user to that resource and searches automatically based on model keywords input by admin). • Ability to download images of model straight from web app (instead of linking to an image archive).
  • 11. Future developments Future gazing… • Port as native mobile app (Using an HTML5 framework or Adobe Air) • Make use of devices camera with augmented reality to detect the model in view and overlay labels • Or have built in QR reader within app to scan and view all in one app • Rotatable 3D models within app
