So now that you have your personal QR code on your digital alumni card, lets explain how to use it! It’s actually pretty easy…but you have to have the right tools.
To use QR codes conveniently you must have a smartphone equipped with a camera and a QR code reader/scanner. Luckily the newer smartphone models often have these features pre-installed or you can easily download a QR code reading app from your app store.
