Open Street Map


All people do look for a particular place, address or a historical building. How do you go from point A to point B? Teachers and students too need a map from time to time. Teachers would like to teach their students some practical hints how to find a place in a short time. What program do they need to use?  

As usual we go for open source programs where students and teachers can change. That's the beauty of open source! We are providing some quick help in order to master the program which should be quite easy. There are places where one can influence the program especially when it comes to jotting down some interesting places! Please do contribute with ideas in order to make it better!

Editing PDF files


Most teachers and students use pdf documents. Teachers do share and download important files as pdf. What's a pdf file? It's a portable document file. Some teachers like it because the student receives it as it is. Other formats may change when the student opens them on his electronic device, especially changing from a pc to mobile gadgets!

On the other hand, what can a teacher do when he/she has a pdf file but wishes to do some changes? Teachers do editing all the time as they see the students' reaction to their personalised notes. They may change some words or phrases or re-write the file completely.

Today we present Master PDF editor. Teachers and students need it especially when presenting some important information and at the last minute they see some mistakes or wish to change some parts of it.

Master PDF editor is available for Mac, Windows and Linux operating systems. In other words it's cross-platform. If one prefers YouTube tutorials than one must visit this link. Others might prefer the official manual of the program
