With schools worldwide shutting down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, remote learning has reached a scale we’ve never seen before.
Whether this exponential rise of distance learning is caused by the global health crisis or pushed by technology development, there is no need to worry. Document scanning app CamScanner can simplify the process in more than one way. Let’s see how it can help students.
Submit assignments easily
Many disciplines, including math, science, health sciences, and art, require students to submit handwritten or 3D assignments. CamScanner simplifies the process of submitting these assignments online.
The app allows you to turn your smartphone into a scanner, so you won’t have to go to a library or post office to scan your documents. Simply take a picture of your assignment and save it as JPG or PDF. CamScanner will automatically crop and optimize each image and even allow you to merge them into one PDF if your assignment has more than one page.
You can then submit your assignments effortlessly via Blackboard, Canvas, or any other learning management systems.
Effective group working
More than a simple scanner, CamScanner is an all-around app that can also improve group working efficiency.
A group project leader can use it to scan any hard copies sent by other group members and merge them into a single PDF, or simply use the CamScanner PDF Merge function to merge all the PDF files from group members who may scan their work from hard copies or generate the word files into PDF with CamScanner.
In this way, Camscanner helps students coordinate their work for efficient task completion.
Digitize study materials
Libraries lend books for short periods of time, so sometimes you’ll have to scan them to read or learn at your own pace. Losing printed learning materials handed out by professors also happens. CamScanner comes in handy in all these situations.
The book scan mode, currently only available for Android phones allows you to scan two book pages at a time, correcting any page curves and edges automatically. CamScanner also enables you to adjust the brightness and contrast of your scans for better readability.
Whether it’s a full book or just a few chapters, this app allows you to make high-resolution soft copies in the blink of an eye.
Easy note-taking in Zoom classes
Taking notes during classes is essential, but why handwrite on paper when you can use CamScanner? This app allows you to snap pictures of the whiteboards your teachers show via Zoom and save them on your devices.
To ensure the highest quality of your scanned copies, the app automatically crops out empty whiteboard areas and corrects the color to provide the best contrast.
Not only can you use these scanned notes for learning, but you can also upload them to your preferred cloud space for safe storage.

CamScanner is a must-have tool for distance learning, and students using school email addresses qualify for a free CamScanner educational account that includes all of the features mentioned above. So, what are you waiting for? Download the app from App Store or Google Play, install it on your mobile device, and get on with scanning anything you like.
