area: for example, what proportion of them print out online articles or
sections of e-books rather than reading on screen; and are there certain
criteria which dictate whether they print them or not (length of paper,
relevance etc)?

The research which he is planning may also eventually include full-time
students, but the primary focus is on online/distance learners at the

Thank you in advance,
