Abstract

This study examines an emerging source of supplementary IFRS teaching materials. These include professional and institutional webcasts and online videos. The study begins by identifying the sources of IFRS webcasts and online videos, and then provides analysis and guidance for using such media in different levels of accounting courses. We conducted a questionnaire survey that examined student perceptions about using IFRS videos and webcasts in international accounting courses. The survey results indicate that students value the use of IFRS videos and webcasts, perceive them to be effective and to increase their learning, and view them as pedagogical tools that they will look for in the future. This study is important for accounting educators as it provides a useful and engaging tool to deliver IFRS knowledge to students.
