Students learn best when information is provided in varied formats, and videos are powerful, valuable instructional tools. Integrate these informative videos in your curriculum to help students gain a deeper understanding of some of the fundamentals of audit and risk management. Plus, our site tour video will help you and your students learn how to navigate our resources with ease.
I think that KnowledgeLeader is a great classroom resource. I look to it as a way of making sure that the students stay current with what’s happening in internal auditing right now.
KnowledgeLeader was a fantastic resource for my IT Auditing course this spring. Students used KnowledgeLeader to research IT Audit risk issues and study IT Audit internal control questionnaires and work programs to prepare for quizzes and exams and to support their research projects and presentations.
We used KnowledgeLeader in a number of courses ranging from Internal Audit, IT Audit, Audit Software, Forensic Accounting and Advanced Auditing. Students primarily use the tool for case study projects and a large project that they have in the advanced auditing class. For IT Audit they use it for ongoing work on technology risk management which is covered through the class.
I find KnowledgeLeader to be a very useful source of examples that I can use in class. I frequently browse different subjects as a way of improving my own knowledge. It is very helpful in prepping for classes.
The Knowledge Leader website was very helpful in discovery risks and controls associated with a particular accounting process. I was able to use this information to prepare a presentation in front of the class.
Throughout our class we have used KnowledgeLeader pretty frequently and my experience with KnowledgeLeader was excellent. I am really glad that Protiviti offer free access to students. I would like to say thank you very much for KnowledgeLeader team!
