April 22: Issuu for Publishing Student Writing as a Magazine or E-book

Issuu is a free tool that allows students to create and publish a book or magazine online. Students start by uploading PDFs of their documents and can produce an extremely professional-looking and visually striking publication that can then be shared online. Check out an edition of the Shawnee Mission East HS Newspaper.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Go to and sign up through google for a free account.
  2. Browse some examples or check out these: Paso Robles HS Newspaper, a Capstone Project by a student
  3. Upload PDFs for each page of the book or magazine.
  4. Publications can be shared via direct link or embedded into a website or blog.
