“Online materials are better than textbooks. Basically because textbooks are very very very expensive and online materials are provided free for you . . . And if you have to pay for the online materials, it’s still cheaper than the textbooks themselves.”

“Personally, I’m not a fan of it, only because I’m old-fashioned. I like getting my textbook, doing my homework and handing it in — physical thing. The online thing, it’s like you have to go on and check all the time. You get these emails from your teachers at random times; I got a French email at 12 o’clock last night about what’s due. I like syllabus, paper, and I’m old-fashioned like that.”

“Well, it’s good, because it cuts costs, I guess, and it’s accessible. But on the other hand, I like reading books as opposed to reading stuff online all the time, so . . . I don’t know. It’s good and it’s not so good, I guess.”
