As technology continues to evolve, teaching and learning environments are also changing fast. New, innovative instructional aids, such as smart phones and tablets, make the learning experience more efficient and interactive engagement for teachers and students. With the need for anytime access to information, educational institutions are trying to evolve quickly by adopting mobile devices as the preferred way to share information.
One key area that educational institutions are lacking in mobile communication is printing. Much time and attention in teaching and learning is devoted to preparing and processing class materials, which are mostly paperwork. In addition, emailing files or connecting to a desktop PC to print or scan documents is a tedious and time-consuming task for teachers and students.
