Remote Learning in a Paperless Classroom
Converting from paper-based workflows to digital is the first step needed to transition into a digital classroom. Create documents with PhantomPDF and give students access to digital learning materials across multiple devices from desktop to mobile and web. Edit, annotate, sign, convert and manipulate documents with PhantomPDF. Retain correct document formats, protect content from unwanted edits, and make it accessible for students, parents, and faculty/staff from anywhere.
Redaction for Student Confidentiality
According to regulations like the Family Education Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA), schools are legally required to protect their students’ privacy and identity. Whether it be student learning materials, forms, permission slips, or transcripts, schools need to make sure their students’ information is properly protected. With Foxit PhantomPDF, schools can permanently redact confidential student information such as names, social security numbers, addresses, and more from student records.
Protect Document from Unwanted Access
Knowing who has access to your documents and what they can see is a must when it comes to sharing digital files. With PhantomPDF, you can set password protection so that only individuals who have the password can have access to your documents. Documents can also be protected using MIP integration to have precise control over who can have access to your content and when. Set permissions to make learning materials view only, and restrict your documents from getting printed physically with PhantomPDF document protection.
Fillable Form Creation
Forms and contracts such as permission slips are commonly used for students, parents, teachers, and administrators in schools. Paper forms are usually inefficient and difficult to keep track of. Foxit PhantomPDF can be used to generate interactive form fields, set restrictions on forms, and provide digital signature options so schools no longer need to work with paper forms.
Make Documents Text Searchable (OCR)
Most of the time scanned documents like TIFFs and JPEG/PNGs are not text searchable. This makes digital learning difficult as it’s hard for students to navigate through their learning material. Foxit PhantomPDF comes with powerful OCR (optical character recognition) features that can make documents immediately text searchable so students and teachers can find the information they need easily.
Enhance Student Learning and Collaboration
Gain insight and understand how your students are learning from their documents. Find out which parts of a document are being read the most, and which are skipped. Foxit PhantomPDF provides page-by-page engagement analytics to gain readership insight on documents. Easily comment on PDF documents to provide feedback and save directly into your document management system.
Save, Archive, and Retrieve Documents Easily
Managing paper documents can be a time-consuming process. Physical storage is expensive, and digital storage costs can also build up quickly. Compress documents to save storage space and make it easier to send as attachments to students. Apply automatic bates numbering, bookmark, index, and archive different documents for easy access and search ability.
Accessibility (508 Compliance)
Foxit PhantomPDF produces PDFs that are 508-compliant (ADA, EN 301 549) for users with visual impairments. Ensure all students have an equal chance to quality education.
Switching to new technology can be a difficult transition for schools, as they need to get their students, parents, teachers, and staff all on board. Foxit provides 24-hour support and gives IT staff their support with specialized training and webinars to make adoption easy.
