2000, "Multimedia and Management Accounting: Adding Creativity To Accounting", Techtrends, February 44(1): 20 - 22.
Abstract: A study evaluated an interactive multimedia accounting model that was developed to supplement traditional teaching methods at the University of Western Ontario, Canada. Participants were 22 university graduate students enrolled in two small sections of a financial management course designed for librarians. Results indicated that students using multimedia spent longer on the material, had many positive comments, and were enthusiastic about taking another course using multimedia.
1999, "I Have Something to Say! (A) & (B)", Journal of Accounting Case Research, Summer 5(2): 182 - 194.
Abstract: The organizers of the "I Have Something to Say!" Symposium/95 were unsure of what the fee structure should be for either the vendors participating in the trade show or the symposium participants. Although a profit was hoped for, the organizers felt that a more reasonable goal for this first offering of the symposium was to break even. The number of vendors was easier to estimate than the number of general participants. The organizers wanted the fee structure for the participants to include both early registration and group discounts.
