      This has been requested by Moodle partners and some community members (forums, MoodleMoots, etc..)

      It would be good to add a QR code scanner and create QR code for any link via the app. Some initial ideas:

      • Add a QR Code scanner in the More option of the app: if the text scanned is an URL that can be opened by the app, the app will redirect the user to the indicated page. If is not an URL, it would display the text with some convenience tools (like copy, share?)
      • Add a QR Code scanner option in the RTE (rich text editor): So the scanned text can be inserted in the text
      • Add a QR code scanner in the contextual/kebap menu? so the scanned text can be inserted in the text element focused? Like an input field for a short-answer, cloze...
      • Add a QR code scanner option in the "Add site" page, so new sites can be added just scanning a code
      • Add an option for generating a QR code in pages with the contextual menu or display it in other pages, for example: user profile, course page, activity page
      • Export this functionality for plugins (so they can access to it)

      More ideas are welcome
