Pas mal du tout, j'avais acheté un guide PDF que l'auteur avait protégé avec un mot de passe (comme si cela empêchait de distribuer le guide) mais en attendant c'est chiant de garder le code quelque part à chaque fois que l'on veut lire le guide, ne facilite pas pour autant le piratage car il faut donner le code pour l'enlever du guide.

Curate Your Own Wiki-Guide with the Wikipedia Book Create Tool

Help:Books - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There are almost no limits when creating books from Wikipedia content. A good book focuses on a certain topic and covers it as well as possible. A meaningful title helps other users to have the correct expectation regarding the content of a book.

Curate Your Own Wiki-Guide with the Wikipedia Book Create Tool | @scoopit via @k3hamilton -

Robin Good's insight:



Few people know that it is actually possible to curate Wikipedia content into custom print books or PDF / OpenDocument ebooks that contain exactly the content you want in the order you specify.


Once you are logged into Wikipedia you simply activate the Book Creator Tool and then, from that moment on, everytime you visit a Wikipedia page you can click and add it to your curated Wiki-Book.


There is also a dedicated wiki page where you can manage the pages you have collected and you can reorganized and sort them any way you want, eliminating the pages you don't need.


Unfortunately there is no integrated way to edit and further customize the content of those pages for your own use.


PDF versions are freely downloadable by anyone, print book versions are paid.


N.B.: The price for print books depends on the number of pages, starting with US$ 7.90 for books up to 100 pages. 10% of the gross sales price goes to the Wikimedia Foundation. Books are perfect bound, printed in the dimensions 8.5 inch x 5.5 inch (216 mm x 140 mm) and contain a table of contents, your chapters and articles, licensing information next to an index.

Free to use.

It's worth keeping in mind that some 'publishers' try to sell books based entirely on Wikipedia content.

Present And Annotate Live Presentations With PDF Presenter

Present And Annotate Live Presentations With PDF Presenter | Educomunicación |
As we all know MS PowerPoint provides many robust options for creating presentations. However, despite the wide range of available options in PowerPoint it can be hard to annotate slides during a live presentation.

So useful and fun too!

If you use a smartboard, you might get stuck sometimes because you forgot to convert your original PDF into jpeg or any picture format, sot that you can tweak them while having a class.  This app would eliminate that need!

Baiba Svenca's insight:

The article describes how you can display and annotate your PDF presentations using PDF Presenter which serves as an online whiteboard. It lets you highlight the important points on your document while you are demonstrating it.

PDF Presenter is free and it works on all platforms but you will need Java to use it.
