Quick response (QR) codes are two-dimensional bar codes, used to encode information, which can be read by a smartphone. This short guide is intended to provide examples of their application to create links between the physical and digital teaching resources available to students. It describes both practice developed in Chemistry at UEA and implementations elsewhere in academia. The ease of both the preparation and reading of QR codes will be outlined.
