QR codes are easy to make long URLs easily accessible on mobile devices Last year I used QR codes to make it easier for students to access my classroom sign-in / sign-out forms on their phones. I usually use QRCode Monkey or a QR code generator built into Chrome. Recently, I discovered another neat QR code generator called QRToon.
Like all QR code generators, QRToon will generate a QR code for any URL you specify. The difference between QRToon and other QR code builders that you have tried is that QRToon allows you to upload an image to use your QR code. That picture then turned into a cartoon version. The QR code in this post contains a cartoon version of a headset of my own that I uploaded to QRToon.
QRToon is easy to use and does not require registration. Just go to the site, enter the URL you want to convert into a QR code, and then upload an image. QRToon will create QR code with your cartoonized portrait in it. You can download your QR code as a PNG file, print it and use it wherever you like.
It is worth noting that QRToon will only work with images that have only one human face It didn’t work when I tried to use it with pictures of me and my kids. It didn’t work when I tried to use pictures of my dog and cat.
Application for education
Need another QR code generator in the world? Probably not. Is it nice to have a personalized QR code that includes your similarities? Sure. QRToon’s utility is likely to be able to personalize your QR codes to include your similarities for your students to recognize.
However, the QR code of this post will guide you to my ebook, 50 Tech Tuesday Tips.
