Three Free Tools That Convert PDF Files To Word Documents Sometimes however, the format you’d hoped would be available isn’t. Microsoft recognizes this and has made it possible to convert PDF to Word since Office 2007. Adobe also has this feature available in Acrobat X Pro, but unlike Office, Acrobat isn’t software that most users have access to. Fortunately, some free utilities have stepped in to fill the void. Free PDF to Word Converter This lightweight conversion tool is quick to download and install and only takes a hair over 5 megabytes of disk space, which means it will easily fit onto portable drives. The accuracy of this converter is adequate when handling simple documents, but more complex PDF files with images aligned close to text can trip it up. Nitro PDF to Word Online If you have access to the Internet you can try Nitro PDF to Word, an online tool that can be accessed through your web browser. I found Nitro PDF to Word mostly accurate. gDoc Creator Conclusion These three utilities provide a good range of options. It’s your choice.

Knotebooks - Anyone can contribute. Everyone can learn. Student Led EdCamp Period Takes NCMS To New Heights – NCMS Innovates Last summer, we began to implement a series of changes to our school and programs in the interest of better serving the needs of our students and community. We never expected the reaction these changes have generated – and how they’ve rippled throughout the school. Today, we’ve got Digital Shop, the Black Mesa Learning Management System (LMS), Idea Street, Design Thinking, and a “manifesto” that has taken a life of its own throughout the building. And that’s just the beginning. One of the most remarkable developments – something that has pushed student (and staff) engagement to previously unforseen heights – is our EdCamp period. The students even designed and produced a video about it: Fast forward to the present – late January 2016. Led by students in grades 8 & 7 (the latter started an EdCamp period of their own this month) along with their teachers, we are seeing and feeling a vibe, a presence, an electricity that is hard to explain. Examples of sessions just in the past few weeks:
