Below is a list of some useful apps for teachers and/or students.

Document Scanning

Scanning software is very useful for taking an image of a document and convering that into a PDF. This can be instrumental in delivering course material that you don't have a digital copy of or for students to hand in homework digitally that was hand written.


ScanPro is a way to create scans with your iPhone, iPad or Android device. When you scan a document, ScanPro will try to automatically crop the document, straighten it and apply a filter.
