We have developed a digital self-contained module in a website format to help accounting students succeed in writing a report on a company’s financial, social, and environmental performance. Combining e-learning and visualization techniques with traditional classroom teaching, the innovative web-based module is designed and developed to guide and educate students through the assignment. The step-by-step approach in the writing process and the self-explaining tips and hints (e.g., on academic literacy) were the highest-rated features, according to students. By completing the assignment, the students experienced how to apply a reasoned judgment regarding the financial, social, and environmental performance of a company.
