    The most commonly (for different editors/vendors) proposed format is eBook.
    Some students prefer the printed copy but there is another challenge : the cost of the printing which will make the voucher more expensive.
    So for my company, we are offering both with details about the prices so it will be up to the trainees to decide what to get.

    From environment point of view (and mine also), electronic copy is recommended :)

    We thought about doing something like that in the past, but that created a logistical challenge where we would have to stock an indeterminate number of paper copies in the bookroom. You never know how many want paper, electronic, or both. It's never easy, either way, because you either have to issue paper on day one, or book codes on day one, both of which require a great amount of management.

    Of course, we can put the impetus on the student to get their own book, but if it's not available through the college bookstore, you can't apply Title IV funding to pay for books - you have to get it out of pocket.

    It can never be easy, eh?

    Basically to cutt off this extra-management, we are asking (smoothly) the trainees to decide during the enrollment which format they would like so we will have enough time to let the logistic team prepare the needed "paper copies"/ "book codes"
