Docuter - Online Document Sharing

Docuter is a free service that allows users to store and share large documents. Docuter claims to support 200 different document and image formats. Docuter is similar to the Scribd document hosting and sharing service that I have previously reviewed. Just as Scribd does, Docuter makes it possible to easily embed documents into your blog or website. Unlike Scribd Docuter doesn't have an easily searchable gallery of shared documents.

Applications for Education
Docuter and Scribd make it possible to embed documents, including PDFs, into your blog or website. Being able to embed a document is good for sharing lecture notes or outlines with students.

Docuter is also a good place for students to create a portfolio of their writings which they can selectively share with others or share with world by embedding their documents in a blog.
