The personal learning network for educators


The PDF (Portable Document Format) file format is extremely The useful for educators as documents can be viewed across all computing platforms.  This is particularly helpful as the on-line access for parents and students will vary from computer to mobile operating systems.   

There was a time when PDF files could not be manipulated unless an Adobe software product was purchased. Times have certainly changed as there are now several products available to support your PDF needs - most of which are on-line and require no registration. Included below are 10 tools that educators should add to their PDF tool kit:



1. PDF Online Reader

With this tool, users can annotate, highlight and add hyperlinks to a PDF file.


2. I Love PDF


I Love PDF allows users to split or merge up to 10 PDF files at once.


3. PDF Convertor

Create editable Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint documents in 3 easy steps: 1. Upload PDF file. 2. Submit an email address. 3. File will be converted and sent to the email address provided.


4. PDF to Word Online Convertor


Large PDF files can be simply converted to MS Word documents by selecting a file and converting it. No email address is required.


5. PDF to HTML Online Convertor
