No matter where you go, you will run into a pdf file! Be it on-the-job training or Policies, Procedures and Guidelines – pdfs come in all shapes and sizes. Newsletters and company important announcements (or instructions for new application implementation procedures) all come in portable document format, in attractive colors and impressive images embedded.
New employee orientations come in pdfs. Need to learn a new job aid? It’s a pdf again – electronic or hard copy. Need to apply for a new facility within your organization? Go through the pdf to learn “step by step” how to and several other how-to’s – all in pdfs. We cant seem to escape them.
In fact, we need them for optimum daily functions. From mundane to mandatory, pdfs have invaded our learning zone as a primary priority to achieve any incentive or goal. While they have become versatile – a decade long metamorphosis from the black and white to colored, to interactive with multimedia, they are still pdfs. So, whats so negative or unappealing about pdfs?
