From the classroom to the back office to the home, learn how to use Acrobat and PDF make your job easier. We all know that paper-reduction should be a good thing, but how? How do we actually turn workflows that are, today, paper-based into true time-saving and resource s-saving digital workflows? Adobe Acrobat Pro X can and will allow you to convert a variety processes to PDF. You will learn about: 1) building and distributing forms for data collection 2) how to assemble syllabus packets that include just about any type of fileā€”and paper 3) creating, distributing, and protecting student progress reports 4) developing an ePortfolio solution for use by individuals or an entire department 5) distributing manuals, workbooks, and guides in a complete, secure fashion. More than just demonstrating what you can do, We will show you how to use Acrobat and PDF together as a solution in education. So, bring your ideas and suggestions to the session and we will have a lively discussion about how to make them happen. Caitlin Turton, Adobe
