Abstract

Our college students have begun using their mobile phones recently to send some comments in our classes. In Japan more and more young people have a mobile phone with a QR code scanner. The QR code makes it easier for the students to access a web forum for communication with the classmates instead of typing a long web address (URL). Moreover using the QR code and mobile phones also allows the teacher to conduct surveys for improving his/her class during classes. In this research we have developed a system that allows college students to answer a question concerning the class and send some comments to the teacher as well as classmates using mobile phones and QR codes in the middle of each class.
