Each set consisted of three texts: one was delivered through paper, another email and the other mobile phone. After reading each set, students filled out a questionnaire. e results showed that paper was generally more preferred for both sets. For the shorter set, mobile phone was more preferred than email. For the longer set, mobile phone was the least preferred mainly because of the small screen and font.
