Education News put together an info-graphic highlighting the decline of printers on college campuses. Coincidentally, my wife, Ruthann Thomas, who is a professor at Hendrix College gave her students the opportunity to opt-in to a paperless semester. All handouts will be delivered electronically and assignments will be submitted, graded, and returned electronically too. If you’re willing to go the eBanking route, why not further embrace the digital age?

If you’re a faculty member or a student, how do you feel about a paperless course?
