Abstract

Despite a growing demand for e-learning applications, there is a lack of research on eliciting requirements for design of context-aware Accounting Information Systems (AIS) e-learning applications (CAAISeLA) that incorporate the multiple-perspectives of adult learning theories in a workplace environment. This paper describes how Holistic Persona, an archetypical learner and user of an AIS application, can assist practitioners to elicit requirements for design of context-aware AIS e-learning applications for employees. It presents empirical results of twenty employees at a research-intensive Australian university who participated in evaluating the effectiveness of various e-learning resources. The results demonstrate that Holistic Personas and the Five-Dimensional Requirements Elicitation Framework (5DREF) can assist practitioners in designing context-aware AIS e-learning applications.
