The purpose of this article is to describe five tips designed to address these common student complaints and enhance their online experiences, while also addressing instructors’ complaints and improving student participation and interaction. The described, easy-to-implement tips were culled from existing research, online blogs, and my own experiences—both as a student and instructor.

They can be implemented in all varieties of college-level accounting (or other) classes from the first undergraduate financial accounting course, to the penultimate graduate auditing class. The tips have been used in my online classes for the past five years. Student feedback on the courses and techniques is consistently positive.

This article is from the Accounting Instructor’s Resource, an electronic journal that provides teaching tips and insights to those who teach accounting and other business courses.
