They say, ‘When in Rome, do as the Romans do’. And who can understand this better than educationists? Digitizing classrooms became one of the most essential practices recently, but technology must not restrict itself to the classrooms. The education sector keeps evolving to be more palatable to the youth, and technology plays a crucial role in its evolution. Read on to know how can QR codes for education sector work.
The curriculum is only a tiny part of the intervention. Our Chimp thinks macro as well as micro, and both are often interlinked. If we divide each department or process of the education system, there is none that could not use QR codes.
What is a QR Code?
A QR code is a quick response code with binary information that a device can read. This optical label is a more advanced version of a barcode, which includes but is not limited to, URLs, Google Docs, social media sites, forms, PDFs, locations, vCard, and Wifi credentials.
The device in question can simply be a smartphone, something all students have these days. QR code access can make the process of passing information convenient and intelligent.
How can QR codes for education make a difference?
Imagine having different QR codes for admission forms of various courses an institute offers with names, submission deadlines, or other vital details as corresponding messages. Students can access and fill the form with just a scan. The dynamic QR code also accepts changes in real-time, even if the code has been printed.
Colleges can also push out cut-off lists for all the streams through QR codes instead of sending links through WhatsApp, emails, messages or using the good old notice board surrounded by an anxious crowd. Dynamic QR codes let you make those 11th-hour changes in the waiting lists according to the institute’s second and third rounds of selection parameters.
Computer laboratories, libraries, science labs, or any other space that requires access control or inventory management (books) can use QR codes to register students’ details. They can be used as entry points to mark attendance in physical classes.
QR codes can also be scanned to connect to the campus Wifi zones.
Whether it be school exhibition, sports day, parent-teacher meeting, or college fete, QR codes can manage visitor passes for a flawless registration process. The details gathered through the scan can later be used to send other information regarding the event, institute, or prospectus.
Paid events or student stalls at Founder’s day can have QR codes to purchase products purchased by the visitors. You can have the admission fee payment option through the same medium.
Online Classes or Talk Sessions
Whether it be regular classes, guest speakers, google meets, or zoom webinars, a QR code can help you conduct registrations as well as payments for online events.
An educational institute may need feedback from students, trustees, visitors, guest lecturers, industrial experts, or parents on several occasions. Gathering feedback through QR codes is quick and hassle-free.
Profile building and sharing
All the students in schools and colleges have a unique ID assigned at the time of admission. The schools and colleges can associate this ID with the student’s academic and extracurricular performance, career interest, soft skills, and other preferences. Each ID can then be embedded into QR codes so that managing programs like campus placements become a neat process.
While an industry may have some common pain points, each institution can have a unique requirement it wants to address. Please get in touch for a customized solution that helps you manage the system with significantly higher efficiency.
We, at QRCodeChimp, hold the educational institutes and people associated with them in very high regard for the crucial role they play in the upliftment of society by educating our new generation.
