This project initially looked at the primary drivers of paper use within the WPI community and the reasons why, in spite of modern information processing capabilities, the current practices still use an increasing volume of paper. Leveraging the latest technological offerings to counter human preferences for paper emerged as the cornerstone of the ultimate solution. This effort has identified a practical and attractive initiative that leverages the recent advances in tablet computing and cross platform data synchronization to deliver even better portability than paper offers in the educational environment. The use of tablets also provides the very conventional and preferred option of hand written annotation, a feature that, thus far, has only really been available with paper.
