First create your study guide.
Open Audacity on your laptop. (Any audio program should work.) Ms. Brown also suggested using voice memos on an iDevice for better quality of sound.
Record the audio for the QR code.
Export the audio to your laptop. (MP3 or WAV will work) I recommend you make a folder to keep all your files together.
Login to your teacher web.
Create a new section.
Add the audio file to the new section you created.
Now select view site. (Located on the top right corner)
Open the new section you created for the audio files. Click on an audio file and copy the URL.
Open a QR code generator and paste the URL in the website URL text box. (I like qrstuff.com)
Save the QR in your folder and finally paste it into your document. Ms. Brown recommends pasting the QR into the document by first inserting a text box and then inserting the QR file into the box.
(Make sure not to shrink the code too much or it won't scan.) You can scan the code for a test straight from the computer screen before printing and save paper.
Now your students can scan the codes using a QR scanner app such as red laser on their idevices and learn independently at their own pace.
Thanks, Heather for sharing with teachers your innovative idea!
