Established in 2019, our scholarship contest is aimed at Canadian students who are interested in data journalism.
We know that technical know-how and journalism skills are sometimes not enough to make it when you need to finance, build, and develop your career and network at the same time. Well, this scholarship is meant to help you, as a future budding journalist, fill every single one of those needs.
The impact of social distancing and restrictions due to the COVID pandemic can’t be underestimated. With tech events being organized a year in advance by both event organizers and event-goers alike, everyone is adjusting and pivoting to make things work where possible.
While some conferences had to be cancelled, other events have been postponed to go virtual, which undoubtedly makes for a very different and challenging experience.
A week into the new school year during the pandemic. It is a new normal that is trying to function as normally as possible with social distancing and safety measures in place.
Most universities in Canada, for instance, have implemented a blended method that combines both online and in-person learning environments, while younger students across Ontario are also being given the option of attending in-person or attending online. Definitely a change that can disrupt the learning process.
Online learning will rely heavily on new technological platforms and routines. The Internet is key, of course, and while we normally advocate doing things digitally and remotely, such a method isn’t ideal without the right tools to supplement your study plans.
For students, studying remotely now during the pandemic is lacking in things like hands-on lab learning, personal engagement, and one-on-one feedback – all of which can impact your focus and progress.
Essentially, the new normal of this pandemic will be putting the online e-course model to the test like never before. To help with that process, though, we put together a list of some helpful tools and sources that can tweak your studying sessions, your school’s online work, and your remote learning process.
Oftentimes, the simplest tasks you need to perform with PDFs can be the hardest if you can’t accomplish them properly.
Trying to copy text from PDF pages, for instance, is probably one of the most common tasks everyone does with a PDF. It serves as a quick, makeshift data extraction solution that can be done on the spot and with nothing more than a couple of clicks of the button.
Yet, if you’ve ever done so, you may have come across issues when pasting the text into another application. The text can come out skewed, misformatted and distorted, or rendered illegible. This alone is a major reason why it’s always recommended to convert PDF content completely instead.
Fortunately, if you useAble2Extract Professionalas your PDF viewer, you get the best of both worlds. You get to copy text from PDF content on a whole other level to ensure those issues don’t happen.
When you work with digital documents you need to be able to manipulate and interact with the content as needed whether it be for editing, annotating or just simply viewing the pages.
Part of working with large documents also means being able to navigate through them and locate the information or data you need. Usually, you won’t need the entire contents of a file, but just a specific part of a long document.
If you work with lengthy scanned PDFs, though, this can pose a problem. As you know, scanned PDFs are just images of textual content and hence, the content can’t be used in any effective way.
