Tech Learning TL Advisor Blog and Ed Tech Ticker Blogs from TL Blog Staff – TechLearning.com 0 Comments October 14, 2010 By: David Andrade Oct 14 Written by: 10/14/2010 1:41 AM ShareThis There are some really great Web 2.0 Resources for Students out there that can help students with their school work, getting organized, and using other Web 2.0 resources. Trackclass is a great, free resource for students. There is also a version for mobile phones and the iPhone, so students can stay organized no matter where they are. I found it very easy to use, with a great help section. Shoshiku is another free class organizer, similar to Trackclass. Dweeber is a homework collaboration site that also has tools to help students learn better. This is a great resource for students who can't get together physically to work on homework or projects. Google Student Blog: I am a huge user and fan of Google's many applications and their use in education. Google recently launched the Google Student Blog. Scribblar: Scribblar is an online meeting room / white board. Scribblar can now support PDF files. Dropbox

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.
