This article focuses on the incorporation of synchronous (live) sessions in online accounting courses to provide what is termed a voice/visual learning environment. The technology allows application sharing whereby instructors can show on their computer screens virtually any software application including PowerPoint Presentations, Word documents, and Excel spread sheets. Both instructors and the students should have a combination of headsets and microphones. Andragogy and engagement theories emphasize the importance of students being actively engaged in the learning process.

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