Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of using the E-learning approach as well as IT technologies in the teaching process of Economics Information System (EIS) course to graduate students. Also, this study concentrates on two trends, the first one related to the befits of using E-learning approach in teaching EIS. The benefits of this approach are: Saving time for both the instructors and students; flexible scheduling for student since the course can be taken by the employee on time without interfering with his/her work, enable the students to access the material course to be learned at any time in the case of missing his/her lecture or session and improving the consistency concepts. The second related to the effect of information technology on the economic system. For example, we shall see what information is required to make markets efficient. Also, we shall see how this demand for information should be curtailed in increase privacy at the expense of efficiency. The important conclusion of this study can be shown as: Each student can view course content of EIS as well as the examination and homework announcement. Each student can view only his/her own grade not for other student. connection between students and their instructor will be done through a feedback form or e-mail. Students can evaluate his/her self through some quiz grade and the mistake question and finally the students have a capability of surveying all the previous examinations for the same course and subjects.
