  • Basically any document you can save in Word or .pdf format.

Scribd for Teachers: How to Publish and Share Your Documents Online

February 7, 2012

Today’s webinar, offered through ISU Workforce Training, was, Scribd for Educators and Trainers: How to share your own documents, writing and resources on line.

Scribd is the world’s largest online social reading and publishing site. Anyone can join. You can read others work and contribute your own materials, too. Well known writers and thought leaders such as Seth Godin and major publishing houses such as Simon & Schuster have Scribd accounts.

Whether it’s the novel you’ve always wanted to publish or a grading rubric for a science project you’ve developed, you can share your work with others who are keen to learn from you.

Here is what the webinar covered:

  1. Learn the basics of how to set up a Scribd account. It’s easy and it’s free.
  2. Learn how to upload documents. Get tips on what works and what doesn’t.
  3. Learn how to categorize your documents appropriately for maximum exposure.
  4. Learn how to make your documents freely shareable or restrict the reader’s ability to copy and paste your work.

I told the participants that “by the end of this webinar, you will have knowledge that you can apply immediately to set up your own account and start sharing your work.”

Here is the manual that I shared with today’s participants:
