Abstract

In the past, many activities of accounting professors were restricted or confined by their classroom walls. Bringing in guest speakers, taking students on field trips and teaching students off-campus either locally or globally were extraordinary efforts that required significant organization.

Today, numerous technological advancements in communication infrastructure, equipment and online tools greatly facilitate such initiatives. Outside experts can now visit the classroom, students can explore or collaborate in distant places and professors can extend the geographical reach of their lessons simply via the means of video technology. In this article, we share our experiences over the past three years in exploring the utilization of video in the teaching of accounting. Pedagogical techniques such as online video clips, student video projects and lecture capture tools hold great promise for accounting education.

These newly available opportunitIes complement traditional pedagogical resources and can expand and enliven the accounting classroom.

Keywords: Teaching with Technology, Accounting Education, Guest Speaker, Online
