This is a QR code. A QR Code is a 2-dimensional barcode, which has encoded in it a URL (web address), text, or other information. It can be read by a QR code scanner, including QR scanner smartphone apps. Once you have an app installed on your smartphone, open the app and hold your phone’s camera over a QR code to read it. Most QR codes you’ll come across have a URL encoded, so chances are when you read the QR code it will take you to a web page.

Quite a useful website, which explains all of the different Web 2.0 tools and gives examples of the freely available options out there. Some of the pages also have audio which some people might like. Have not used it but it could be useful to share with faculty at Web 2.0 workshops

Technical Remarks:

Pages loaded a little slowly even though i'm on a high-speed connection (although my computer might just be having a bad day).
