Our team was inspired this morning, after reading a story about a Texas high school bringing their yearbooks a leap forward using modern technology.
The changes sparked by new Apple mobile devices on campuses can already be seen in a long-cherished print product, the McAllen High School Yearbook. The first page of the 2012 edition sports a QR code — a kind of barcode that can be scanned with a cellphone, often to pick up website URLs.
Each QR code in the yearbook takes readers to a video of a different club or sports team, all shot with iPads distributed last year.
So, interested in using this innovative idea for your own yearbook? We thought so, so we put together a short tech note outlining the whole process, from shooting the video to adding the QR code to your yearbook.
