In tradition teaching environments, all of us rely mainly on synchronously delivering, sharing, and interacting with learners. Learning tends to be more asynchronous but is inextricably connected to teaching. The 'holy grail' of contemporary learning and teaching is to create that same traditional classroom feel within a virtual environment but use the power of e-communications and digital resources to enrich e-teaching and e-learning for solitary and collective learners. This paper describes the possibilities (ecstasy) and pitfalls (agony) through the application of digital technologies to close the 'soft' information gap between on- and off-campus accounting students in a digital environment.
