Needless to say, we are delighted at what AccountingWeb had to say about Deloitte's IFRS e-learning.

Incidentally, in the first ten days over 5,000 modules were downloaded.

Excerpts from AccountingWeb 6 Feb 2004

"Review: Deloitte IAS Plus - e-learning for free Training consultant Viv Cole test drives the IFRS e-learning service from Deloitteand discovers a powerful performer that can be yours - for no cost."

"Deloitte must have spent the cost of a F1 Ferrari on developing IFRS e-learning and now they are giving it all away for free.... On you can follow the Deloitte IFRS e-learning logo to find modules that are designed to give you a good basic grounding in each IFRS. Once you have waded through the disclaimers, it is straightforward to download zip files of each module (the files are approximately 3Mb each, so having a broadband connection does help). Some of the features to highlight are:

  • a clearly presented and easy to navigate user interface
  • good use of questions and feedback to develop your understanding
  • a strong practical feel, with several scenarios where you need to think of how to apply the standard in order to provide advice, for example to a client
  • the variety created by use of audio and graphics to represent incoming phone calls, emails and faxes
  • a Coach button to help you go into more depth if you choose."
