This study investigates whether or not student’s performance, self‐efficacy, and satisfaction are enhanced by the use of an enterprise system as a support tool for learning business process and enterprise systems concepts. The study compares three instructional delivery methods. A traditional instruction method (lecture format plus reading/exercises) serves as the control. The second and third instructional methods are computer‐based methods. In the second method, students receive traditional lecture format with full access to hands‐on an enterprise system transaction exercise. In the third method, students receive traditional lecture format, but also have full access to simulated hands‐on an enterprise system via Web transaction exercises (i.e. ScreenCam movies). A statistically significant difference between‐instructional methods effect is found. Post hoc analysis showed that the simulated hands‐on instruction group’s performance score was significantly higher than that of the control group. There were no other statistically significant differences found, but practical considerations at this learning environment are discussed.
