I have a student that submitted a paper created in Apple’s Pages and I can’t read it using Word. What can I do?
Professor H. Higgins
Dear Professor Higgins,
Check out Online-Convert.com. This website allows you to upload files and it will convert them into a format that you can view. It’s all done online and is free so no software is needed on your computer.
- Just go to http://www.online-convert.com
- choose the proper converter (Audio, Video, Image, Document, Ebook, or Archive)
- then choose the format you want to convert TO, example “Convert to DOC,”
- then click GO.
Scroll down and click Choose File to upload our file then click Convert File. It’s just that easy.
This is also a great site to allow you to convert all those old research files and papers into a format that you can view. I’ve used it for converting Pages to Word and old AppleWorks to Word.
