The concept of paperless classroom and utilizing e-learning technology to complement or support traditional learning are not a new idea. However, very few papers, if any, carried out an investigation to consider the implication of such a switch towards the student achievement and the quantitative cost benefit analysis of such a switch.This paper presents an investigation carried out on four modules at School of Architecture, Computing and Engineering (ACE) at University of East London over a period of five years as they made the switch from paper-based, to paperless delivery, and then to complete paperless module including assessment collection, marking and feedback termed it as a green module. This paper conducts an in depth reviews of four green modules where the delivery, assessments, marking and feedback with an in depth review of the implication of such a switch. This paper also considers what formula educational institutes can use to calculate the cost benefit of implementing a paperless method. In the long term, the results shows statistically significant improvement in students performance, statistically significant retention and improved students' satisfactions on top of the reduction of cost of module delivery.
