Using quick response codes for student interaction during lectures

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    This paper will present an ongoing project to encourage student interaction during lectures through the use of Quick Response (QR) codes and Google forms to generate rapid response polls and quizzes. The use of Google applications (Apps) software and the students’ own mobile phone presents a free alternative to the current clicker systems. The pedagogical issues associated with such a project will be investigated and an attempt made to incorporate these into the student experience. The overall process from the creation of the software to the roll out and use of the software in an interactive lecture, the issues encountered and participant feedback will also be described.
