Adobe Scan

Adobe Scan is a free app available for iOS and Android devices. The app uses your camera to capture documents, whiteboard drawings, or other scenes and converts the file to a portable document format (PDF) file. In addition, you can grant the app permission to access your photos, so any scene you capture can become a PDF. The instructional technology leaders at GCC recommend using PDF whenever uploading files to Moodle. PF files can be viewed on any device and PDF files submitted by students can be reviewed using the Annotate PDF tool. (There are exceptions, for example, when students need to use template files to complete assignments, but when creating files for students to view or faculty to grade, use PDF.)
