How to convert webpages into pdf files

  • Imagine you want your students to read an article from a webpage or a blog post but don't want to rely on the internet. 
  • Imagine you want to share a text from the internet with your students but don't want all those images from ads.
  • Imagine you want to print an article from a webpage but don't want to waste so much ink with images and ads.

What can you do?

I'd like to share one of my most used tools at the moment. I often assign readings to students and more and more good articles can be found online. However, relying on wifi connection is not something I can count on right now, unfortunately.

This is what you can do:
1. Download the google chrome extension PRINT FRIENDLY & PDF .
2. Open the website/article you would like to share with your students.
3. Click the Print Friendly & PDF extension.
4. Delete the parts of the text which you think are not vital.
5. Download the pdf file.
6. Share the PDF file with students.

Learn how it works.
