Abstract

Energy conservation and green technology is one of the most debated topics in the world today. Corporates are taking measures to work on green technology. Green technology is not only being environmental friendly but also aims at full application and integration of latest advent of technology across all spheres for convenience and ease of use. The rapid growth of technology has provided wide scope for implementing green technology. The drive for working with green technology has led to working towards a paper free environment. Traditionally all organizations worked with paper and manual journals for their day to day operations, but have rapidly transitioned their operations to a paper free environment. Beginning with the use of computers, today technology has advanced towards being portable and available anytime, anywhere. Internet is now available even in the personal gadgets like mobile and I pads which can be carried all the time and remain connected unwired. The concept can be extended to schools and universities, for work towards a paper free environment. There is a shift in search of alternatives available for replacing textbooks. [9]Mobile learning has been the most prominent and we are working with a test market to see the viability of replacing textbooks. A sample survey on m-learning was conducted and the results are very encouraging. This result has encouraged application of this idea to a wider scope to reach people from all spectrums. With the above m-learning which absorbs e learning can be showcased to minimize if not eliminate the traditional texts. Worldwide all major publishers have already begun the transition and have their material available in a variety of formats. Digital downloads are getting popular and cheaper than traditional texts. Amazon, the world’s biggest book store has recorded more digital downloads than selling traditional texts. They have also come up with their own e-reader called The Kindle.These technologies can be applied to wider application on a broader forum and create equal opportunities for all, globally without bias of distance and reach.
