Getting Started 

 

A QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode.  A QR code is typically used for storing URLs or other information for reading by the camera on a smartphone.  The QR code usually consists of an array of black and white squares.  Teachers can create QR codes which students can scan using the app on their BCPS device.
