Students Merging Multiple pdfs Into a Single pdf

Drag or select the files you want to merge
Select multiple pdfs you want to merge.
  If you do not have access to Adobe Acrobat Pro, and your students need to merge pdf files into one pdf, there are some free web tools available to complete this function such as PDF MERGY .  Simply put, you select the files using drag and drop from your computer and initiate the merge.  It will put the documents in the order you placed them and upload the file to an unencrypted remote server for a brief time.  You can even use documents from Google Drive and Dropbox. Then you save the merged document to your computer or     Google Drive. 

The order of the documents in the merged
file will match the order you see on the screen.
  Do not use with confidential files, even though they delete the files almost immediately, it is not secure to upload sensitive or classified information. The site is still in beta and can be used with  any browser that supports recent HTML5 standards. Namely: Chrome 7, Firefox 4, Safari 5, Opera 12  and even IE 10,  or any newer version of those browsers. 

 This type of program is a problem solver for collaborative work, many times, students work in small groups to complete a project, if they each make a pdf of their work, they can merge then into a single file to publish.  Most types of documents can be saved as pdfs, including powerpoint files. 

You have the choice of where to save your merged file.
