Courses offered on the Web, multimedia presentations, listservs - these are some of the opportunities that are being offered in education throughout the world. Students in the Department of Accountancy Law and Finance at UNITEC were asked what they expect from information technology to enhance the way that their courses are being delivered. Lecturers were invited to describe what teaching tools they are currently using and what they plan to use in the near future. It was expected that students' expectations would be greater than what is currently being provided. The aim of this research was to discover if a gap exists and if so, to make some recommendations as to how the gap could be narrowed.
