Blended learning, the incorporation of different learning environments, is widely adopted in higher education institutions. The term usually refers to the combination of traditional face-to-face classroom methods with more modern computer-mediated activities. Through a blended learning approach, online learning plays an important role in the learning process which allows learning to happen at anytime, anywhere. In this paper, we review the use of online learning in an accounting course in our institution. The online courseware is launched in our new e-learning platform, SOUL 2.0. A survey is conducted to investigate the online learning experience of students and their perception of various online course materials. The results show that most of the students were satisfied with the provision of online course materials which made their study more flexible and accessible.
