Create an eBook or PDF "magazine" from Web Content

Zinepal is a user-friendly site which allows one to create a printable (and digital) magazine from online content. There is a free version of the service as well as a "pro" version for a subscription fee. There are quite a few uses for this beyond the classroom, but below I've shared some of the ways I've used it with my students.

1. Capture the content in your class' or students' blogs to create a literary magazine, complete with pictures.

2. Students can create zines as part of their research on a given topic. Because content can come from a varitey of sources, students are able to print a mash up of complementary information.
