File conversion web tools like Docspal are used in the secular and Judaic Studies face to face and virtual classrooms for the following reasons:
- Some file formats are so large in size (e.g. doc files) that they cannot be easily transmitted by email.
- Some file formats (e.g. doc files) take longer to download.
- Some file formats are incompatible with the software on a computer and thus the file cannot be shared.
- More users have access to conventional file formats like JPEG (an image file format), PDF (a document file format), MP3 (an audio file format) and MP4 files (a movie file format).
