Presentation title
Students’ Acceptance of the Use of Excel to Teach Accounting Modules via Online Learning
Presentation abstract
The implementation of e-learning in educational institutions has been escalated by the Covid-19 pandemic which necessitated an almost overnight shift to remote learning. This has posed problems in delivering quantitative modules. Therefore, the students’ acceptance of Excel as an innovative tool to provide illustrations for Accounting was studied using a quantitative approach at a private university in Kuala Lumpur. The five attributes of Roger’s Diffusion of Innovation model were linked with Davis’s Technology Acceptance Model to form the conceptual framework for this study. A validated survey instrument adopted from Moore and Benbasat (1991) was distributed online to students of a private university using a simple random sampling approach. In total, 71 students responded and the data was analysed using descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. The results showed that the attributes had a strong positive relationship with the intention to use Excel and the usage behaviour. The findings of the research contributed to an understanding of the perception of undergraduate students regarding the usefulness of Excel in delivering Accounting modules remotely. These results can be generalised to populations with similar characteristics which are pursuing subjects adhering to a structure and curriculum like that of Accounting subjects.
