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.

Webopedia looks like a very useful site to learn about computer terms and uses.
In the few articles that I reviewed it clearly explained each term. Although,
in the articles that I reviewed the articles assumed that the learner had
pervious knowledge of the subject matter.

Time Spent Reviewing Tutorial: 10-15 Minutes

Content Rating: Good content, learners may require previous knowledge.

Usage: Mid-Level technology users who want to know terms and usage of new
technology and the associated terms.

Ease of Materials: Materials were easy to follow with previous knowledge

Technical Remarks:

No obvious mistakes. The advertising was annoying when it flashed. It is
understandable that some sites need to be self sufficient but the ads will
distract focus on articles.
Used in course
