Student Perceptions and Experiences Using Jing and Skype in an Accounting Information Systems Class
Charron, Kimberly; Raschke, Robyn
Journal of Education for Business, v89 n1 p1-6 2014
The authors examine the use of technology to support students in their learning of practical accounting software applications while taking a traditional on-campus class. Specifically, they look at how Jing and Skype are used to facilitate successful completion of a series of simulations using Netsuite (NetSuite, Inc., San Mateo, CA) accounting software. The authors find that students using the technology support tools experienced higher levels of perceived satisfaction than those who did not, while earning equivalent grades. They conclude that virtual instructor support is equally as effective as in-person support, allowing both the instructor and student more flexibility in how their time is spent.
