A follow up for my MUSD Teachers...

I found this information on

Some of the teachers that attended the MUSD, Session 3, inquired: 

How to convert a PDF file into a Word Document 

With Adobe Acrobat

*Note: you’ll need the paid version of Acrobat to use this method. If you don’t have Acrobat, or only have the free version, skip to the next section.
  1. Open the PDF document you’d like to convert.
  2. Click File, then Save As.
  3. In the drop-down menu labeled Format, select the .DOCX format.
  4. Click Save. You may have to wait for a moment. 

Without Adobe Acrobat

The free version of Adobe Acrobat won’t allow you to make conversions, so for those of you who don’t feel like shelling out $300 just to do a single file conversion, we’ve detailed a completely free way to convert your PDF into .DOCX below.
  1. Head over to
  2. Click on the Choose File button.
  3. In the pop-up window, find the file you want to convert, select it, and click Open.
  4. Enter your email address in the box.
  5. Complete the Captcha code on the bottom to prove that you’re a human.
  6. Click the blue Convert button at the bottom.
  7. Head over to the inbox of the email address you entered in step 4, and look for an email from pdftoword.
  8. Open the email and download the freshly-converted file. 
Batch file converting
If you’ve got a whole bunch of PDFs that you need to convert into a word-friendly format, here’s the best way to do it

  1. Download Wondershare PDF to Word for Windows or Mac.  The free trial lasts for 15 days, but it doesn’t have any limits on the number of files you can convert.
  2. Follow the instructions to complete the installation process.
  3. Open Wondershare.
  4. Import and convert your files. Wondershare can batch convert up to 50 PDF documents at once.
