MP3 QR Code

Turn printed words into audio

Not everyone retains information by reading. So by implementing MP3 QR Codes in your teaching materials, you let students choose whether they like to read or listen. You can also add additional learning material such as a podcast so they can learn more about a topic. This way, everyone gets a fair chance at learning and it also broadens your teaching method. Upon scanning, the Code redirects to a customizable MP3 player with a customizable button that you can link to more materials online.
