PaperlessMe Goes Public

PaperlessMe has come out of beta after a round of glowing reviews from testers in the spring. The conference and classroom note-taking web app allows for users to draw annotations and type notes during a presentation on their own digital copy of the presenter's slides.

  • eService for Specs and Documentation Conversion

    eService will be an extension of a current service for converting specifications and other agency documents (e.g. a construction manual) from traditional Word documents to formats suitable for mobile devices (e.g. smart phones, tablets, and eReaders).

    This service automates the process of creating mobile versions of the documents. The document is first converted to XML, from this, we create all the versions:

    • XML - This is a base format that is the foundation for all of of the other formats and potential future formats.
    • Mobile App – This is a device specific app that allows the content to be stored on the phone and accessed offline.
    • HTML Pages - A collection of web pages are created to display the documentation online. The web pages will be responsive pages, which means that they will adapt for the screen size. The pages will be just as easy to view on mobile devices as it is to view on a desktop browser.
    • eReader – converts XML files into popular eReader formats, including the open standard ePUB format.

  • PaperlessMe

    PaperlessMe is an HTML5 web app that allows teachers and conference presenters who use PowerPoint presentations to turn their slides into digital “handouts.” Students access the lectures on their laptop computers, iPads and Android tablets, where they can add their own notes and save the files as PDF documents.

    How does paperlessMe work?

    Teachers and conference presenters load their PowerPoint presentations into paperlessMe and enter the day and time of the class or conference session. A unique URL is created for the presentation, which students and conference attendees log onto in class or afterward.

    Why should I use paperlessMe?

    It saves time and money, and aids in learning. Digital handouts mean no paper, eliminating copying time and saving resources. Students save class lectures on their electronic devices, where they are more easily accessed and used.


    • Class calendar, available in weekday or monthly views
    • A conference agenda where presentations are accessible.
    • Thumbnail screen for viewing all slides
    • Pen, highlighter and eraser tools, for adding, deleting, and/or highlighting personal notes
    • Personal note taking within slides and a separate “whiteboard” pop-up note screen that remains visible on all slides
    • Lectures and presentations can be saved as a pdf file to a local device.

    IN3 will license the product through a Purdue University group, 3iD.
