With colleges and universities offering more courses online, professors may have to teach courses online for the first time. This paper serves to address the expectations of teaching a course online for the first time, and offers recommendations for new starters of online courses.
The research was based on the introductory accounting courses I taught in summer semester 2014. A survey was given to the students to address their course expectations and results. I also examined the grade distribution and withdrawal rates between the two different course delivery methods (online and on-campus).
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.
