Thing 13 - Zamzar

Day 36 - Thumb up!
Originally uploaded by Rafa from Brazil
We already use Zamzar. There is a link to it on the ERHS Media Center homepage. We are seeing an increasing number of students who do work at home who have Vista or XP and our older computers at school can't read their documents. We try and teach our students how to do a "save-as" and choose a format that is readable at school, but often they don't ask and thus we have a problem. It is really easy to import documents into Zamzar and then this program converts the document (Word, PowerPoint) into a version that can be used at school. We have "saved the day" quite a few times this year using this program. Many thumbs up!
