Hi Qwerty Rogers

What is a QR Code?

What a quick response!

A QR Code is shaped like a box
It may be small and red, or big and blue

For marketing, a QR Code rocks
To send a lot of info straight to you

Use your smart phone to scan this code
With an app you’ll find for free

A website, pic, or link will load
The best is yet to see

 

Qwerty Rogers is a QR (Quick Response) Code, a two-dimensional image that works much like a standard barcode. While QR Codes usually appear as black and white boxes, they can take on many appearances.

Mobile Tagging is the practice of using QR Codes so consumers can scan them using a smartphone or other camera-quipped digital device, and be automatically directed to more information.

If you have a smartphone, you may already have the ability to unlock their secrets.

How do I use a QR Code?

If you have a smartphone with internet access, using QR Codes is free and easy. Many smartphones now come with a preloaded app that reads barcodes and QR Codes. If your smartphone did not come with one preloaded, there are several free apps for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry platforms. We recommend trying:

  • Barcode Scanner
  • MobileTag
  • QuickMark
  • Quick Scan
  • ScanLife

Once you have the app installed and running, all you need to do is scan the code with your phone’s camera and it will automatically direct you to the featured content.

Try it out and let us know what you think.

How will RSU be using QR Codes?

RSU intends to use QR Codes to add value to a number of our publications and advertisements. You will find them in future issues of our alumni publication “On The Hill,” as well as on promotional materials. These codes will also be used to share information with students regarding academics, campus events, and other campus life issues.

Where else will I find QR Codes?

As smartphones become more prevalent, QR Codes are likely to gain popularity. They can currently be found on print ads, movie posters, soup cans, digital signs, and more places every day.
