Scribd is a social sharing tool that allows you to upload documents to share. It’s a great way to push assignments out to students because they can download documents from Scribd in a variety of formats, including those used by mobile devices.
If you use Blackboard, and you want to upload your class notes to Scribd and then share them in Blackboard, all you need to do is to copy the embed code from Scribd and paste it into your Blackboard course. Don’t forget to toggle your editor over to html mode first, or you’ll just get a bunch of jibberish.
Otherwise, your embedded content from Scribd something like this:
My 2009 NCTE presentation is on teaching Eudora Welty. I’ll be part of a session on Southern Women Writers with Beverly Fatherree of Hinds Community College.
Click here to download a pdf of my presentation handout.
Teachers and students are welcome to copy the handout in any way they like for classroom purposes.
I will be presenting this to teachers, but I have put the handout together with an audience of students in mind. Teachers like ready-made handouts for the classroom.
Since the presentation is not on a technology topic, and this is a technology blog, I will add that it was created using the non-profit newsletter template from Pages, a program that came with my MacBook. The document itself is a work-in-progress and is likely to undergo changes even after my presentation. If you have suggestions for changes or additions, please let me know.
