At the end of the fall 2013 semester, I made myself a movie director…well, maybe not a movie (yet), but it is a short video illustrating the importance of being organized and diligent when taking an online class in accounting. After teaching financial accounting class online for a few semesters, I found that some students are extremely successful – while others struggle a lot. This time, I decided to ask a successful student to share his experiences – hopefully students after him can learn a few tricks before they start – or at least know what they got themselves into!
Many thanks go to the OEL staff, the graduate student instructor Brad Mikus, and my start student Nicholas. The completed video is here:
