If you don’t have Word To Pdf Conversion software to do it, you can just assemble the documents together in their app, like Word, Open Office Writer, or Google Docs and then export them as a single PDF. I appreciate your question and believe it’s much better in most cases to assemble a presentation into a single document than it is to send several separate docs for the users to open separately and assemble themselves. I won’t accept projects from students that arrive as a slew of separate documents. If there are ten pages with diagrams and docs in ten files it takes me lots longer to get through the project than ten pages in one file, and I won’t do it. I don’t believe anybody else wants to do it either, and will likely ignore or be ticked off at something that shows up scattered across a lot of files with no beginning, middle, or end that needs to be puzzled over and assembled.
Thanks for the thoughtful note of advice on this, and for the link to the website! In the end, I found that once again the best approach was to simply write out a simple summary (in the form of one large document) that I knew would work well. When the student could assemble his project (or project with a lot of pictures and explanatory texts), he then would be able to take it to another class or in another setting where he would be able to follow the lecture notes. Of course, not everybody can write in a straight forward (unemotional) and easy-to-understand way, and I appreciate the suggestion to go back over your notes and organize them in order to better understand them, before proceeding on your own. Thank you for your response. I have written a similar letter about my own project. I think my notes have been organized.
