Tag My Doc - Adds Dropbox and Box Integration

Tag My Doc is a neat service that allows you to put QR codes on any of your documents. I initially tried it out and reviewed it here last fall. Today, the Tag My Doc team sent me an email announcing some new features which include integration with the cloud storage services Dropbox and Box.

You can now connect your Tag My Doc account to your Dropbox or Box account. By connecting your account any document that you use on Tag My Doc can be saved in your Dropbox or Box account. And documents that you have in either of those two storage services can be pulled into Tag My Doc to have QR codes applied to them.

Watch the video below for a fun introduction to Tag My Doc.

Tag My Doc's other new feature is a set of Microsoft Office add-ins. These add-ins allow you to tag, store, and share documents directly within Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

Applications for Education
Use Tag My Doc to put QR codes on the paper documents you distribute in your classroom. Then students can scan them to save them to their phones and tablets thereby eliminating the need for you to give out extra copies when if your students lose the paper documents you gave them.
