Use of Video Clips in a Virtual Learning Environment of Accounting Information Systems Class—A Case Study


It is more challenging for accounting students to learn and engage with the technology, used in the accounting field because of an increase in student numbers and a decline in teachers. We provide a practical knowledge of how video clips can be created and used to teach accounting information systems. Video clips of how to use Sage 50 Accounting are created by Camtasia Studio and distributed to students. The students’ leaning experiences show that video clips help a lot when they study in accounting information systems class.
