OER16 Actionbound Instructions

As part of OER16 we invite you to take part in our treasure hunt. If you need more encouragement than it just being fun there are prizes which will be awarded at the break on Wednesday at 3pm in the Pentland room at the conference venue. You don’t need to be at OER16 to participate and to get involved firstly you will need to download the “Actionbound” App from either the Google Play Store or the Apple Store.

Actionbound appOnce you open the App you will see a number of tiles.

To start the “bound” please select the “Scan Code” Option.

The app should start your camera & then you should scan the QR code below to get started:
