The Implementation of Paperless Policy: A Case Study at a Language Training Center in a Private University in Jogjakarta
Andreas Winardi

Duta Wacana Christian University, Yogyakarta


Nowadays, technology has become an integral part of our lives. One of the interesting things concerning the advancement of technology is the fact that the world is becoming more and more paperless. The idea of creating paperless classroom was initially stimulated by the availability of Internet Technology and the possibility of reducing the cost by minimizing the use of physical materials (Slowinski, 2000, in Wang, 2010). Looking at this trend, as the Head of a Language Center, I came up with an idea to apply paperless policy at my institution especially at the Introduction to College English (ICE) classes. In reality; however, the idea did not work well. This quantitative and descriptive qualitative research describes the reasons why the policy failed. The data were taken from a survey, teacher-s reflection and semi-formal interview with some of the teachers. The findings suggest that there were several factors contributing to the failure of the policy, namely: overconfidence, over generalization, and lack of communication and preparation. It is implied that the success of paperless practice needs support from students, teachers and institution.
