The PDF (Portable Document Format) file format is extremely The useful for educators as documents can be viewed across all computing platforms.  This is particularly helpful as the on-line access for parents and students will vary from computer to mobile operating systems.   

There was a time when PDF files could not be manipulated unless an Adobe software product was purchased. Times have certainly changed as there are now several products available to support your PDF needs - most of which are on-line and require no registration. Included below are 10 tools that educators should add to their PDF tool kit:
