Your Kindle in the Classroom

Kindle owners do lots of things with their Kindles – some of this you may already know how to do, but there may be a lot of you who never thought to do it.  There is a discussion thread going on over at the Amazon site where members are posting some of the random things they do with their Kindles in addition to “just” reading books.  I will be profiling some of these over the next few weeks – after all, part of the title line of this blog is supposed to be about Kindle tips vs. just a feature on free books!

I use it to read online presentations in my classes, mostly my computer science classes. I just take the Power Point file and extract the outline (the basic text only), and put it into a Word document and send it to my Kindle via email or the USB cord. I love it.

If you don’t know how to transfer documents to your Kindle, you can click here or type in http://bit.ly/transferbooks into your computer’s web browser to read my tutorial on how to do it.  This is the same tutorial I have as a book for sale for 99 cents in the Amazon Kindle store, but you get it for free.

Have a tip you want to share with the group?  Just send it to me via email (kindle at gagler dot com)!
