This study believes that teaching an accounting course at a university level requires alternative as well as innovative methodologies to allow greater dynamic in the learning processes and to foster a better understanding of the accounting topics. In this sense, this study aims to investigate the effectiveness of online teaching tool as one of the platforms to enhance the learning process in accounting education. This study was conducted on the students of the Faculty of Accountancy, Universiti Teknologi MARA, Perlis Branch (UiTM Perlis). One hundred and two (102) accounting students participated in this study and answered the questionnaires at the end of the course. The analysis showed that online teaching tools (i.e., Nearpod) used in teaching accounting subjects have some influences on the attitudes and academic performance of the students. This study perceives that embracing technology as one of the teaching methods through a virtual mediator like Nearpod can equip students with more practical processes of learning and discerning of the subject matter.
