As mobile technologies become increasingly prominent in our daily lives, mobile tagging with QR (Quick Response) codes in the business sector is prevalently in many parts of the world. However, we believe the movement of using QR codes in education is still in its infancy. Apart from our own research in this area, this paper explores the possibilities beyond the simple use of the codes and offers some suggestions on how the technology can be used to its full potential.
