Using Acrobat in Writing Classes: Summary

Summary

Adobe Acrobat PDF documents are an easy, effective, and inexpensive way to distribute examples, reference materials, and assignments. A collection of such materials provides students with an electronic “library” of real examples. In addition, students can use the tutorials, career information, and reference materials as inexpensive learning resources. 

The major changes in Acrobat 5.0 involve improved ability to output text and graphics, greater simplicity in collaborating on documents using a browser, and support for metadata. There are a multitude of enhancements to the tools and settings that make it worth investing in the upgrade.
