Abstract

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems offer a software-based system that handles an enterprise’s total information system needs in an integrated fashion. Such systems have seen a significant growth in the last decade in the US, Europe and Australian markets and, more recently, increasing growth in Asian countries. This increase in demand for ERP systems in Asia offers opportunities for the provision of high-quality ERP education programs in the region. This paper outlines the experiences of Victoria University in offering ERP education through a strategic alliance with SAP and extending ERP programs using e-learning services. The e-learning model used blends synchronous and asynchronous content. The e-learning approach provides an avenue for ERP e-learning using a variety of methods to cater for students’ differing needs and learning styles; it is able to provide greater flexibility in offshore subject delivery and to maximise student learning outcomes. This is particularly relevant in response to the changing international environment.
