QR codes in the Listening Center- Follow Up
So earlier this year I posted about using QR codes in my listening center. If you want to read more from the original post, here is the link.QR codes in the Listening Center Today I want to quickly share a fast and easy way that I have started generating these codes. In the past, I would go to a QR code generator via the web, paste the audio file web address from my dropbox , generate a qr code, cut and paste the code into a label template in word and then print. Recently I learned that I could add a chrome extension that would not only shorten urls when I need but will also generate a qr code in a small pop up box right on the same screen. Now I just open dropbox, click the file I want, and click the shorten-er icon. This will take the file web address, shorten it, and also generate a qr code from it. I can also copy the code directly from the pop-up. I still have to cut and paste into the label template but it no longer requires as many steps! I am definitely all about simplifying. If you would like to view a screencast of how to add and use the shorten-er extension. Please click below.
