Best practices and applications
1. Go beyond words
2. Give learning a whole new dimension
QR codes are especially great for educational books, as they allow you to add new elements for students. Use a Download File QR Code to host an MP3 file with vocabulary pronunciations for students learning a new language. Connect a YouTube QR Code to a video with extra learning materials for a concept in the book. Create a Mobile Page QR Code with extra illustrations students can explore. Show students exactly where a historical event took place with a Google Maps QR Code.
Because the QR codes are dynamic, you can always update the information or add something new when you need to.
3. Connect with your readers
When readers finish a book, they really want to talk about it. The problem is, it can be difficult to find other people who have read the same book. Use a Website QR Code to connect readers with a discussion forum about the book or a Social Links QR Code to suggest groups they can join for a spirited discussion.
A YouTube QR Code can lead to a list of other books by the author or a trailer for their most recent work. Get creative and connect a QR code to a playlist curated by the author so readers can get to know them better. If the author wants to collect more followers on social media, they can list their accounts on a Social Links QR Code for readers to scan.

QR Codes on Books: How to do it right
It’s great for brand recognition and it’s another way to make your QR code unique.
Keep in mind that it should be at least 3 x 3 cm (about 1 x 1 in) and it should have good contrast with a darker foreground and lighter background. Make it stand out from its surroundings and give it an enticing call to action. uQR.me will tell you if your code appears to be scannable, but you should test it nevertheless.
