Technologies are creating learning opportunities that challenge
traditional educational institutions. Students use mobile technologies
outside the classroom but aren't allowed to use them inside. Learning
through mobile devices, known in literature as mobile learning
(m-learning), highlights the acquisition of context-oriented contents.
One of the promising technologies to be used for this goal is a variant
of barcodes; quick response codes (QR-codes). In the suggested learning
system, QR codes will allow an automatic authentication on moodle
platform by the student through his profile and his mobile device. These
codes enclose the necessary information to connect the context-oriented
materials and the learning places. Each student follows guidelines with
the instructions of the learning places to visit, informing about the
QR codes to decrypt. The detected information is sent to the moodle
platform asking for the context-oriented learning material. A case study
will be conducted to show the degree of efficiency and effectiveness of
its use and relevance in the teaching-learning process.
