Presented by: Annie Hagy

About the Webinar

Access to eLearning “snapshot” series*

From take-home packets to Google Classroom, PDFs are now a staple for eLearning. But PDF assignments are challenging for many students—especially without in-class support. They may have difficulty:

  1. Opening and accessing PDFs
  2. Reading and comprehending text independently
  3. Writing on the PDF assignment or quiz

With simple PDF annotation tools, teachers can make these digital assignments accessible for students of all abilities.

View this recorded snapshot* look at how Co:Writer and Snap&Read work together seamlessly to support independence in any learning environment.

You’ll see how to use these PDF supports for eLearning:

  1. Read aloud, text leveling, translation
  2. Word prediction, speech to text, topic dictionaries
  3. Integration with any LMS including Google Classroom

*This webinar is part of our Access to eLearning “snapshot” series of 20 minute sessions covering accessible learning curriculum and technologies to bridge the eLearning gap. Each session was designed for administrators and practitioners and includes free tools, resources, and a path to develop a more equitable school infrastructure. The tool genres presented (assistive and accessible technologies) are recommended by the CARES Act education funding guidelines.
