As mobile internet adoption increases mobile engagement with information and access to services becomes increasingly routine. However, mobile (M)–learning implementations are heavily "input dependent" and the current phone–pad input functionalities are constrained by size, time–consuming and, consequently, frustrating for users of handheld devices intent on seamless engagement with information and service access. To increase the impact of m–deployments a number of institutions are using QR Codes and Mobile Tags (QR/MT). QR/MT allows users to browse m–environments with embedded camera phones providing ready access to information, services and assessments.

This presentation will firstly, identify techniques, procedures in the use of QR/MT in teaching and learning, secondly, investigate efficient and effective ways of creating, storing and managing QR/MT, thirdly, investigate how these technologies can be integrated within institutional infrastructures.
