Catch of the Day - Publish Online - 5 Feb 10

Today, I threw out a big net and hauled in a whole school of sites for publishing and sharing documents online.


Docstoc is a community for sharing documents. With DocStoc, you can find and download high quality legal, business, technology, educational, and creative documents for free. DocStoc also allows users to upload their documents to be shared with the world. DocStoc members can store their documents in their own personal online folders for anytime, anywhere access.

You can embed documents in your website, blog, wiki, etc. Your documents can be shared with the Docuter community or your own friends and can be emailed to anyone you want.

In just a few seconds users can create beautiful digital editions simply by uploading their publications. Issuu supports formats with the extensions pdf, doc, ppt, odt, wpd, sxw, rtf, odp, and sxl.


Scribd is the largest social publishing company on the web, Each month, tens of millions of people publish and discover original writings and documents. On Scribd, you can quickly and easily turn nearly any file into a Web document and share it with the world. Documents are accessible to Scribd's community of readers, indexed by search engines, and easily embedded and shared on thousands of other websites. Scribd supports many document formats including pdf, doc, ppt, and xls.


Slashdoc is essentially a generic content submission system, accepting almost any type of content. Slashdoc uses the latest technology to make sure your documents are submitted to the major search engines giving you the most exposure possible. Slashdoc combines a vast database of content with the latest modern technologies to provide a whole new experience that is focused on making your information accessible and valuable. Everything is completely free, and you maintain copyright to your work.


Youblisher is a barebones site. Upload a PDF and it is converted into document featuring animated flippable pages. You will be given a link to use for sharing your document as well as embedding codes. Document creation, hosting, and support are all free at Youblisher.


Yudu is an online library and marketplace that lets you read, publish, buy, sell, and share digital content. It's a place where you can publish your work online, to share with the world. Yudu is a free library of digital content to read and explore. Find eBooks, magazines, and other documents as well as photos, music and podcasts and bookmarks and add them to your own library. File types that Yudu can turn into a digital publication: pdf, doc, ppt, and xls and their OpenOffice equivalents

Using a site such as anyone of these, you can make all sorts of classroom documents easily accessible to students, parents, and colleagues. It's a positive step toward being paperless.
