This study examines students' perceptions of the use of an online accounting eworkbook as part of the blended learning approach in financial accounting. Students in an intermediate financial accounting course were given the opportunity to use an online e-workbook with the aim of reinforcing knowledge and competencies from previous accounting courses and to develop these competencies where needed. At the end of the semester students were surveyed to determine their perceptions of the use of the e-workbook. The survey findings indicate that the majority of students found the e-workbook easy to use and all appreciated the instant feedback they received. Over 70 per cent of students rated it as highly valuable to their learning, with the experience improving their confidence and competencies, and helping them to be aware of their own strengths and weaknesses and learn from the mistakes they made. Overall the use of the e-workbook proved effective and a useful addition to the learning tools used in the course.
