4 Ways to Create PDF with Bookmarks (Acrobat Tutorial)

Posted on Oct 21, 2014 by Mary Cheng Last Activity on Oct 22, 2014

No matter you want to produce an eBook, a brochure or just a simple document but with a number of pages, you may want the reader to navigate your PDF much easier with Bookmarks. If you use Microsoft Word to produce your document, the process is pretty easier as long as you do use the Style properly in Word. However, if you’re given access to a PDF only, without the access to the original document, you can still add bookmarks later on. It just may take you some more time. This video will demonstrate 4 different ways to create PDF with bookmarks. Convert to PDF with AcrobatConvert to PDF with WordNew Bookmarks from Structure (From Acrobat)Create Bookmarks Manually (From Acrobat) The audio recorded sound terrible, therefore I didn’t include audio in this video.

Any lesson plan or grading rubric should be customized to fit the specific needs of your curriculum.

Engaging Students with Adobe Voice

Posted on Sep 16, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Sep 18, 2014

This is a lesson based around getting staff to learn how to use Adobe Voice. It also gets them to think about how it could help students with literacy issues become more engaged as well as giving a voice to special target groups. In NZ the target groups are Maori and Pasifika, but these could easily be altered to match the situation elsewhere in the world. The Voice_Help_Sheet is a sheet so that staff can reference it if they cannot get immediate help from me. I have designed it so that the sheet can be skimmed and, hopefully, the learner may pick up other ideas as they go through. The other sheet (Voice_Task_Sheet) is a sheet giving task and discussion instructions. Of the two exemplar Voice presentations, I created the first and the second is one that explains a scientific concept (so illustrating a different use). I have not included the exit slip as part of this download- this very much depends upon you personally and whether you think it was better to have an electronic form submitted.
