CamScanner Empowers the Development of Digital Education During the Epidemic
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, many universities and schools have no choice but to offer online classes. As a result, teachers have to upload their teaching materials online while students have to upload their homework and even finish the exams online. Scanning apps become extremely useful under such a situation. CamScanner, as one of the world’s leading scanning apps, offers excellent scanning features and is favored by teachers and students. In this way, CamScanner is empowering the development of digital education.
The education industry has long sought to use emerging technologies to innovate and enhance the learning process, but the COVID-19 epidemic has spurred digital transformation in education even further, with major increase in e-learning and remote-teaching.
CamScanner, powered by industry-leading mobile scanning and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, enables users to scan, edit, and manage physical documents more effectively using their mobile phones or tablets. Users may also convert PDF files to Excel, Word, JPG, and PPT, and vice versa.
Students have long regarded CamScanner as a crucial tool for digitizing documents, such as scanning and uploading homework and assignments to Google Classroom. The app is also suggested for scanning school registration forms, identification cards, and other tangible papers into digital versions.
To better contribute to the development of digital education and empower students and teachers, CamScanner has launched a CamScanner for Education program during the Covid-19 pandemic., which grants access to the premium version of its product for free to universities in several countries. Students and teachers may use the CamScanner app to authenticate their educational identification and receive a free upgrade to premium access, which includes 10GB of cloud storage, an ad-free experience, no watermark on scans, the ID scan function, the ability to convert photos to Excel, etc.
It’s a gift that CamScanner gives to the whole society in response to user’s favor. In the past year, CamScanner education accounts have been used by over 1,500,000 students and instructors from 9,000 schools. By providing free premium accounts to universities, CamScanner is empowering education throughout the world.
