OK, back to my story. I just went to delivr, pasted in our website address, hit ENTER, and generated the code. (Will that really take people to our site?) We took my husband’s smart device, pointed it at the code at right, and straight away it opened up the Hatfield Historical Society home page. It only took a few moments, no joke. And no typing! Check it out.
Now, in addition to putting our web address on our program flyer and event posters, we can add this QR code to make it faster and easier for people to find us.
But say I want to use a QR code in the museum to send folks to an audio clip that goes with an artifact – like 102-year-old Mary Riley Pickett talking about the old hand-cranked phone (below) and the “party line” phone system in Hatfield.
We’re also curious to know if e-readers like Kindles and Nooks can read the codes. Let us know how or where you’ve used QR codes, and what you like or don’t like about how they’re used.
* By the way, if you happen to be upgrading your tablet and have an earlier model you’d consider donating to our “cozy” museum (that’s old-fashioned code for not enough room and tight exhibit spaces), we’d love to let our visitors who don’t have smart devices yet (most of them) still be able to access additional stories about artifacts – without taking up more room. (You never know unless you ask...)
