GOOGLE CLASSROOM ADD-ONS

These add-ons I’ve evaluated to be useful – they’re not just a long list!

PDF Candy

Short Overview

  • Is a website that allows you to convert a pdf file to a Word File. This can then be converted to a Google Doc to be then distributed as an assignment in Google Classroom. PLEASE ensure you comply with any copyright on the pdf file.

  • Process is
    • Go to the website¬†https://pdfcandy.com/pdf-to-docx.html
    • Add your PDF file from your computer or Google Drive
    • Download the converted file to your laptop or Google Drive
    • Upload to Google Doc’s if not already there and then Open the file as a Google Doc to convert from Word to Google Doc
  • The converter site does a nice job (generally – not 100% of the time) of retaining the formatting of the original PDF document.
  • When converted to a Word file, it also allows you to copy/paste material from or into the document to other places.
