Organizations and individuals can create specific Tags by using the Microsoft Tag Manager Web service. When the Microsoft Tag Reader application is installed on a mobile device, the Tag Reader can be used to scan a Tag using the built-in the device camera. When a Tag is scanned by the Tag Reader, the information encoded into the Tag becomes available on the mobile device.Although Tags are easy to create, how Tags are placed in the field will influence how effective they are in communicating the encoded information to the audience. This guide provides best practices for producing Tags in different types of media. Additionally, it addresses the best practices for testing Tags

The approach encourages learners to illustrate what college life is like for them by taking photographs highlighting areas they enjoy and areas that need improvement. Adam Smith College, Cardonald College and Reid Kerr College piloted the Photovoice approach over the 2007/2008 academic year and successfully introduced the approached to over 80 students.
