  2. Every material in MERLOT has a QR code which makes it easy to share with mobile devices.

    QR Code A QR (Quick Response) 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.
