Abstract

Many colleges and universities have made a commitment to offering distance learning to students. Therefore, it is important that instructors understand the impact distance learning tools, such as synchronous chat, have on the educational experience of the student. The purpose of this exploratory research is to examine the effect of synchronous discussion, or "chat," on the performance of students in undergraduate introductory accounting courses. The results demonstrate that there is a correlation between attending chat sessions and successful completion of an introductory accounting course. The findings point to the value of continued research in this area in order to determine the degree to which chat affects student performance and the implications that chat has for collaborative learning.
