The application acts as a cognitive tool for both internal and external students whereby the students establish business processes in the enterprise resource planning application and the application demonstrates operational activities and financial transactions. A cohort of students has been surveyed and the findings demonstrate that education using an enterprise resource planning application as an interactive learning tool is both practical and beneficial. The conclusion being that the student experience is a positive one.
