Back to Evidence of work
The evidence of work file is Huge can be huge
You are to scan 45 Exercises/assignment of students you have marked and graded and upload onto the NTC TPG Portal.

The maximum file size to upload is 5MB yet the pictures together give about 50MB.
Today happens to be the end of the CPD Cycle.
Our advice to our audience is to at least scan the exercises and upload to get some CPD Points for it.
We know scanning at the photocopier shops will be expensive, hence majority will use their phones.
There are many Apps on the App Store or Play store that allows you to scan directly and convert to pdf.
That PDF file will be large you may not be able to upload.
Here is how to compress it.
Upload the file onto your computer.
select the file on your computer,
Right click on the File
Select open with

Choose Microsoft word
Word will now convert your pdf to an editable document ; Select ok
Allow to load
Enable editing when its fully opened or select Save as
select File and choose save as not save

Save as; choose PDF
Just below that select Optimize standard (Publishing online and Printing )
