How it works
5-10 hours per week
You can attempt the online, automated review and feedback exercises as often as you like. You will be automatically awarded a badge as you successfully complete labs and quizzes in the MOOC modules.
The first time you access the website, you will be asked for additional information (e.g., name and email address). This will allow us to automatically forward badges to you as you complete the various modules. You can earn a total of five badges:
|Badge||Overall percent of assessments completed|
What happens when I complete the course?
When you have successfully completed at least 75 per cent of the assessments in the five modules of the MOOC, you are eligible to purchase a Certificate of Completion. An email will be automatically sent to you with additional information and links.
Can I get AU course credit for this MOOC?
If you want to pursue credit for the course, you will have to successfully complete at least 75 per cent of the assessments, and then you may apply for credit for ACCT 253: Introductory Financial Accounting. This is a required course in Athabasca University’s Bachelor of Commerce program.
An email will automatically be sent to you with a link to information about the process once you get close to completion. You will be required to write a timed, invigilated, online exam that covers the material presented in the MOOC. You need to achieve at least 50 per cent on this exam to earn credit for ACCT 253.
This course is for professionals interested in learning about introductory accounting principles or individuals who may want to discover more about online learning and to then move into the BComm program.
