Convert your documents into attractive presentations using Issuu and Scribd

2010  |  

Both of them are Web 2.0 applications to quickly and easily convert a file into a Web document. Whereas Scribd transforms almost any file (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, etc.) to be shown and shared on the web, Issuu converts a PDF file into a great quality flash that can be read like a magazine.


Students in the 4th year of ESO at IES Marina Cebrián school, together with other students from other European schools, used Scribd to publish the "EU-topical" newspaper, which was integrated in the Into news! project.  This way, various issues were edited, and in each one students collaborated in the treatment and publishing of different topics.

On the other hand, an example of how to use the Issuu application is provided in the EU online magazine project, where 14 schools from different countries took part, such as the Colegio Rural Agrupado de Aragón school. In this case, they chose to compare some cultural aspects (Christmas, national symbols, Easter, etc.) in partner countries, in various editions made using this tool.

Please bear in mind that the Issuu application has a 100 Mb or 500 page limit per file.

You can learn more about these ICT tools on the official websites:



They both have their own tutorials to make it easier to use them. From here you can access the Scribd and Issuu tutorials directly.
