Better options than printing

Printing can be costly, time consuming, and wasteful. At best, it frequently leaves you with a single copy of a document that's easy to lose or accidentally destroy (along with any notes you add to it).

Digital files can have clickable links and interactive elements. They're often more accessible to students with disabilities, simpler to share and backup, and easier to edit or search for a word, phrase, or character.
