MyLab Accounting is a digital learning resource designed to work alongside specific textbooks as an onlinehomework, tutorial and assessment programme. MyLab Accounting provides a variety of different questiontypes which can be studied independently or assigned by the lecturer.
“it’s quite a powerful tool for me from a point of view of identifying if someone’s engaging or not. For example, if in week 4 I have someone who’s not been at a Computer Lab class yet, I will look at MyLab Accounting and see if they’ve engaged with that.”
