PDF, Adobe's Portable Document Format,  has been extended with the introduction of Acrobat 9  to include embedding and linking rich media. This provides the capability to embed video and audio files, link to live resources on the web and much more. A great resource for extending PDF capabilities is available on-line at The PDF Developer Junkie Blog. The link: While some of the resource links may seem dated, I think many of them are relevant for today's teaching needs -  supporting potential e-book implementations and disseminating educational material via e-mail and learning management systems in a compact, cross platform way. The caveat - creation of these advanced document requires Adobe Acrobat Pro - which can be purchased at a steeply discounted educational price through the college bookstore. At a minimum, check out the PDF Developer Junkie Blog to view examples of projects. The blog has a collection of ideas that may stir the imagination and provide ideas for disseminating and creating support materials for the classroom.
