With this new discovery this morning I have added it in to my course management system so now when a user creates an assessment not only does it send the form link to a unit table of contents, it will also send an inline QR code as well for students. I see this as being helpful for students accessing the form quickly and for a teacher being able to copy that image and place it directly on a paper copy of the test. The form links are now also paragraph items rather than list items which I think should help if the user wants to edit the text later. For users of the course management system this update is applied for all future units created.
