Why use a PDF in Edji?
PDF documents are prominent throughout education, and for many good reasons. Since most PDF docs are pre-made by a third party or scanned paper documents, so they can be an easy way to get quality content to students without making the content yourself or searching tirelessly on google for a credible source. Most importantly, PDF documents are a reliable way to ensure that every student can see the same exact thing, without having to worry about the students’ devices changing the document properties.
Here is how to put a PDF document into your Edji reading:
Once you are on the ‘New Reading’ page, click the PDF icon to the left of the content box. This will bring up a small window that will let you search for your computer for the document. Once you find it, select it and hit the ‘Upload’ button in Edji. There is a limit on file size of 10-megabytes, but your file will likely not be that large. Your document will be converted to be compatible with Edji, which might take a few minute, depending on the size of the PDF.
Once the pages you want are in your reading, you can choose to add additional content between pages or finish up your document. After you finish and share your code with your students, they will be able to make comments and collaborate on the document!
