- Word docs should be saved to a unversally acceptable format such as .pdf, .rtf, or .html. This avoids compatibility issues with students not using Microsoft Word.
- Handwritten notes should be scanned and saved as .pdfs. Don’t have a scanner? Then walk across campus to the CAT Lab in the basement of Carroll Hall. CAT Lab associates can get you started in this very easy process.
- All other paper-based documents such as pictures and graphs can be scanned as well. Just be sure to save these in a universally acceptable format such as .jpg, .gif, .pdf, and so forth.
