As I handed over a PDF on a disc to a local printshop so that they could start making copies of the course reader I'm assigning this fall, I was still considering digital alternatives--but really couldn't come up with any. If I provide students with the PDF, they'll end up printing it themselves (at practically the same cost and same amount of paper waste) or reading it on a device with limited annotation options. This may not be the most exciting topic in digital humanities, but it is a practical issue that comes up for me every term. I like the portability, accessibility, and reproducibility of digital documents, but often find them less than practical when I'm trying to teach close reading skills or help students develop their abilities to quote/use research in other ways. Any advice or suggestions? I've made worksheets for students to document readings and tried a few other things, but most of theses alternatives seem like busy work compared to the simplicity of writing on the document itself. I've also considered trying to make word document versions of readings that I frequently assign so that students can highlight, add comments, etc.
