Information Technology is pervasive in many facets of a student’s educational and working life. Also, the level of individual computer experience within a classroom differs significantly from a decade ago. Computerised accounting packages are used as instructional tools due to widespread industry adoption and the desire to prepare graduates for employment. Questions arise as to whether such software meets the needs and expectations of the students sufficiently. Computer experience, in particular the number of computer courses previously studied, was found to influence both perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness of MYOB when used in a first year accounting course.
