Trying to use these QR codes in my teaching recently has meant that i need to convert documents to a URL address so that the QR code can be connected to a web address and the document can be seen online. I have used a number of solutions for this problem;

  1. Google Docs; This is an obvious choice as each document can be assigned a unique address when you share the document.
  2. www.issuu.com ; I have used this site to transform dull PDF files into really cool, magazine style interactive documents. This is a great way to put documents online.
  3. http://www.letscrate.com/ ; This site is a good way to get a url for the document. Another good thing is that it is a simple drag and drop from the desktop into ‘the crate’ (have a look and you will see what i mean!)
  4. www.embedit.in ; This site gives you an embed code, and a url for the document.

I have been trying them all, becasue depending on which device you use to read the QR code depends on which site is the most appropriate. On the android phone that i use www.embedit.in is probably the best to use with QR codes. But you will need to test the site with your own device to see which is the best for you.
