Accounting is a procedural activity which involves skills acquisition and appreciation of technical language. It involves little critical thinking or problem solving at an introductory level and yet many students on Business programmes find the subject difficult. Poor student engagement is a serious problem for a subject that is sequential, so ways to support students who fall behind have to be found. At Brunel we have been experimenting with audio-visual software, to provide short skills-based, instructional videos. Accessable‘24/7’ on Blackboard, the tutor can give help to the student in an efficient way. The popularity of the videos has been overwhelming.
