What are some ways to incorporate Adobe Acrobat into Physics programs, besides traditional means?

​I had a multifunction printer/copier/scanner and would have students do a one page problem (with math and drawing); and then scan the 20 papers into one pdf; crop out the names; and then find a few to annotate with comments - exemplary work. I could then take the extracted pdfs save as images (Or screen shot) for projecting up on the computer screen. With Acrobat would extract a few of them and post to a cloud folder for future reference - to share what is good work for others to learn from. Also used Acrobat quite a bit to combine pdfs and delete pages that I didn't want for archiving and storage. Add in the use of Adobe Draw; precision drawing App shapes, lines, stamps, freehand...and the layers you can take a picture of lab equipment w/ students (iPad); and then use a drawing layer to do x-y axis with ruler; and other shapes, free hand for those invisible "Force vectors" chalk. A simple version of "Augmented reality"....students were really into it...
