Slideshare version using qr codes to improve learning and performance


Published on

QR codes are rapidly growing as a great interactive technology tool, a way to communicate with clients and colleagues and share information rapidly. QR codes can be used by workplace learning professionals in conducting training as well. When used appropriately in training, QR codes increase conversion optimization, increase participant engagement, and allow participants to find information, learn in teams, and access company resources just-in-time. This session will show you how to create and scan QR codes and use them to share information with clients, colleagues, and training participants. You will create and use QR codes; identify opportunities to enhance learning through their use; integrate use of QR tagging into existing training; and understand how to use QR codes as a mechanism to improve learning and performance in your organization.
