Teaching a topic regarded by students as difficult or of low relevance can be quite challenging, as is the case of an interdisciplinary subject such as Accounting Systems. In a recent ILT monthly seminar, I shared my experiences in employing various technologies to develop self-directed learning resources, as well as suggestions for encouraging and monitoring student usage. Learning resources include case-based multi-choice questions, problem-based e-tutorials, and animated “flying lessons” explaining the intricate details behind business processes.
