Integrating the World Wide Web into an accounting systems course
Abstract:The World Wide Web (the Web) presents a new dimension in the provision of information, not just for entertainment and for business, but also for education. This paper reports on the integration of e-mail and the Web into a third year accounting systems course. The Web was used both to supplant traditional lecture-based teaching and as the vehicle for a significant portion of the summative assessment on the course. e-mail was used for communication with the students, for submission to the tutors of their Web assignment and for feedback to the students on the assignment. Student views on the innovation are also reported and discussed.
