Why I like it
After teaching for 18 years I have amassed A LOT of resources...and back in the day many of them are PDF. While I may not want to use an entire resource, I often find I want to use parts of PDFs. PDFcandy allows me to have digital copies of these PDFs that I can manipulate for my own use (with credit given of course).
Two uses in education
- Extract information from PDFs that you can manipulate
- Create PDFs of your own work so that it can’t be manipulated
