Abstract

This article describes the significant improvement in learning outcomes following the introduction of an innovative new on-line resource, FinanceNow! to students enrolled in the introductory finance unit at the University of Melbourne. Overall, we conclude that those students who access the FinanceNow! materials more frequently exhibit superior performance in the subject This result is robust across alternative measures of FinanceNow! usage and is still present after controlling for student gender, the basis of a student's enrollment, and previous academic performance as measured by their ENTER score. This study adds to the growing literature documenting the relationship between effort and performance in introductory finance units.
