What impact will a digital, paperless environment have on students’ learning experience? asks Prof. Evgeny Káganer. In an experiment providing half of Executive MBA students with paper materials and the other half with tablets, the main concern of the latter was the inability to view more than one document at a time. However, this was offset by accessibility, versatility and the ease of searching. The move to digital means that educational institutions face some major adaptations over the next few years, Káganer concludes.
