Required Materials:
Scanner and PDF Software or Digital Notepad System

You will submit all lessons for this course electronically. Your work for each lesson will need to be saved as a PDF in order to submit the lesson for grading. If you have multiple pages, those pages will need to be saved as one file before uploading.

There are several ways to save your completed lesson work as a PDF. One of the most common ways is to use a scanner to scan your pages into a digital document. Some scanners will allow you to scan your pages and save them as a PDF. If you are not able to scan to a PDF, you will need to convert your scanned pages to PDF files. You can do a Google search for “PDF creator online” to find software to convert your pages to PDF files. One of the most popular sites is PrimoPDF.

If you have several PDF files, you will need to merge those files into one large file before submitting your assignment for grading. Again, do a Google search for “Merging PDF files” to find online software to complete this task. PDFMerge! is a good site for merging files. Another good resource is PDF Binder. You can find any of these tools by doing a Google search for its name.

We have also provided instructions for the ACECAD DigiMemo L2 and the ACECAD DigiMemo 692 for both PC (Windows XP/Vista/7) and Mac (OS X) users. Please note that students are not required to use the ACECAD DigiMemo. This is just one tool that will allow students to create a PDF.

IMPORTANT: TTUISD staff is only able to offer limited technical support for scanners or the digital notepad system. Please refer to the support documentation bundled with your particular device and/or seek direct support from its manufacturer.
