Free Online Conversion of Many Media Formats

I've written about a number of individual file conversion tools in the past. Most recently I covered video file conversions and PDF to Word conversions. Recently, I discovered a great site that handles video, audio, text, and image conversions all in one place. Online-ConVert handles all of those media formats plus ebook and hash conversion in one central location.

Need to convert a document to HTML from PDF? Online-ConVert does that. Want to convert a video to a new format or download a video from the web? Online-Convert does that too. Do you need to convert an audio file to MP3 or WAV? No problem, Online-Convert has you covered.

One of the features of Online-ConVert that I really liked is found in the video conversion tool. Not only can you change the format of the video, but Online-Convert also allows you to specify the display dimensions of the video you're converting.




















Applications for Education
Online-ConVert could be a great resource for teachers who work in schools that use multiple operating systems and need to make media available to all of their students and colleagues regardless of which computer(s) they use. Online-ConVert could also be useful when a student comes to you with a flashdrive containing a document that you cannot open. Finally, Online-ConVert could be used to download videos from the web for classroom use.
