Connecting printed pages to web content

Wouldn’t it be great if a student browsing through a book could point their mobile phone at a printed page and get relevant web content immediately? That’s exaclty what Microsoft Tag allows users to do.  Star School – a South African based publisher – allows leaners to scan a printed tag with a mobile phone camera, and this automatically opens the phone browser to the relevant “media” object – hosted in the Star School LMS. This complements the learning experience by playing a video, animation, audio …etc. Thanks to my colleague Ammar Al-Attiyat for picking up on this one.
