To the Editor:
I believe that St. Thomas students should be allowed to choose online or traditional textbooks for every class.
Some students prefer online books, while others prefer hard copies of their textbooks. We are paying for the books, not the school.
For students who prefer hardcopy, it is also very expensive to buy both the online book and a hardcopy of the textbook. Tablets can also die and it is a big inconvenience.
The online textbooks are also very slow. These are the reasons why I believe that St. Thomas students should be allowed to choose the format of their textbooks for every class.
