So useful and fun too!

Dovid's curator insight, October 2, 2013 11:02 AM

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! 

Christine Bushong's curator insight, October 10, 2013 1:29 PM
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.
