I am currently an MBA student, and absolutely love using my Kindle to purchase text books, rather than purchasing the overpriced heavy copies form the campus bookstore!
Also, another tool that many of the students use--or at least the ones that I have worked with, is a program called Group Table. In grad school school work and group projects are synonymous. It was becoming overwhelming trying to keep every revision organized, while making sure every member had a copy. This program made it really easy for us to share any type of file (powerpoint, excel, video, word, etc) and revise it right on the site. We were able to make comments, set deadlines in the group calendar, and virtually collaborate in the chat room. Its not necessarily a "paperless" phenomenon, but it definitely aids in being more efficient, without the use of making a million copies to share.
Paperless is definitely the future of academia, and anything else that will contribute to being more efficient with our resources.
