The purpose of this study is to measure the following: student satisfaction with the paperless classroom; student satisfaction with paperless feedback; and costs savings as a result of the paperless classroom. Traditionally, software courses are paper-intensive because of the large amount of assignments being submitted for grading by students. In an effort to “go green,” this study is proposing the electronic submission of software assignments and electronic feedback by instructors using Blackboard’s virtual hard drive and USB flash drives. The response from students on their satisfaction with electronic submission and feedback of assignments was overwhelmingly positive. The study also resulted in a 48% cost savings on paper and toner.
