Movenote Comment envoyer facilement des gros fichiers ? Envoyer un fichier d’une taille respectable à un contact n’est pas toujours chose très facile. Les pièces jointes dans un mail c’est bien mais la taille du fichier est limitée. On peut tenter un envoi par MSN ou autre messagerie instantanée mais il faut que votre contact y possède lui aussi un compte. On peut bien sûr envoyer le fichier sur son serveur FTP mais cette opération est surtout utilisée par les geeks et les informaticiens… pas trop par Mamie Denise… Le plus facile est de passer par un service en ligne. Il en existe des quantités. Il faut cliquer sur le bouton Parcourir… pour choisir sur votre disque dur le ou les fichiers (3 maximum) à envoyer, d’ajouter l’adresse mail d’un destinataire (cette option est facultative), d’ajouter un mot de passe facultatif et de valider les conditions d’utilisation du service. Le ou les fichiers sont alors transférés sur le serveur de SendBox. Si vous avez choisi l’option mail, le lien de téléchargement sera communiqué par mail à votre contact.

Mural.ly - Google Docs for Visual People Correcteurs orthographiques et enseignement du français Les traitements de texte récents possèdent souvent un correcteur intégré et tout utilisateur recourt, à un moment ou à un autre, à un tel outil, surtout lorsque cette correction peut s'effectuer "à la volée", et que les erreurs sont décelées et signalées dès que le mot est saisi. Pédagogiquement, la question se pose alors de savoir si ce type d'aide à l'écriture peut bénéficier ou nuire à l'apprentissage des compétences orthographiques en classe. Peut-on permettre aux élèves de s'aider de ces outils pour produire un texte "sans fautes"?

We are excited about the possibilities, and we imagine digital publishing being used for: Students publishing their own fiction writing within the school communityStudents creating images and videos to embed into written documents (i.e., student developed 'Khan Academy')Teachers creating integrated digital resources to share promising practices (i.e., multimedia teaching materials)Teachers creating unit guides for students (combination of text, visuals, videos and links) Why create ePubs? ePubs have a number of functions that PDFs or WORD documents don't, including: We have been creating our ePub documents through Apple's Pages - as it allows you to export documents as ePubs.

With nearly 3 million articles in the English version alone Wikipedia along with its sister wikis is an Alibaba’s treasure trove of information. Now, Wikipedia gives us a chance to take this information and use it as one of the oldest forms we have known ““ the humble book. It is just the Wikimedia Foundation’s attempt to make “˜human knowledge’ accessible to everyone”¦online and now also offline. To capsulize the process, users can collate the article pages of their choice and create a book from this existing material through a simple link available in Wikipedia.
