This SLP gives the participant a competency in computer literacy and compliments their accounting studies. Generally learners have to solve problems in the practical exercises in which responses display that responsible decisions have been made. Furthermore, they must also work effectively with others as a group in class. It is also expected from learners to take responsibility for their own learning, and to organize and manage themselves and their learning in a systematic way.  To achieve the outcomes, learners are advised to make effective use of technology in communication with the lecturer and finding information.
