Best Practice Published 11/24/10 Last updated on 2/28/20
The PDF Assignment Builder will allow you to create assignments and other assessments that open in the free Adobe Reader. Your student will be able to write to, print from and save a copy of these PDF files. Watch the tutorial below to learn how to use the Assignment Builder to convert a Microsoft Word (or other word processor) file into an Adobe PDF file with User Rights enabled. Posting assignments to a website or a Learning Management System (LMS) as a PDF eliminates the need for students to purchase word processing software, allows disabled students to use built-in accessibility features and ensures that student submissions are all in one file format.
There is no need to purchase any software to use the PDF Assignment Builder.
