Scanning work to upload to moodle

Scanning work ready to upload to Moodle

If work is hand-written, it is possible to use a mobile phone and 'scanning' software to photograph the work, remove the background colours, and save as a PDF file


Scanning software will:

  • remove background colours, so the work is easier to read
  • rotate and crop the pages, so only the relevant parts are shown
  • save the file as a PDF so that it is ready to upload to Moodle

How to scan

There are various apps available on phones for scanning documents; the videos below explain how to use two of these apps depending on the phone manufacturer:

Apple: built-in software - "Notes"



Android: free download - "CamScanner"
