The primary problem identified in this study is the lack of adequate information system education for accountants in large, global, decentralized corporations. A secondary problem identified is the desire of corporations to use web-based instructional delivery for their education needs. These problems are addressed through the design and development of a web-based instructional prototype that provides a foundational overview of the information system of a large, global, decentralized, manufacturing corporation.
The study's research questions focus on (a) determining appropriate content for the prototype, (b) determining an appropriate instructional design for the prototype, (c) determining an appropriate web design for the prototype, (d) illustrating and providing a rationale for the features of the developed prototype, and (e) determining requirements for implementing the prototype in a corporate setting.
Such an instructional prototype with foundational concepts common among manufacturing corporations has the potential for widespread use. It can also significantly reduce instructional development time, as an adopting corporation need only add organizationally-specific information system content.
