DOCUMENT INFO
Description: The Biz/ed site based in the UK is a comprehensive Web site developed to support business education. While the site's central focus has been on providing educational material for the UK, the extent and the quality of the material, as well as the fact that access is free, has encouraged educators from other countries to use the site in support of their own efforts. One of the better known components of the Web site is the Virtual Bank of Biz/ed. Texts on banking note similarities between banking practice in the UK and the US, especially when compared to banking practice in France, Germany, or Japan. Based on these affirmations, the author researched the Virtual Bank of Biz/ed to see whether it could be used in support of a course in Money and Banking focused on US banking practice. This paper discusses how the Virtual US Bank of Biz/ed was built. The effort provides a model of how Web material developed for one time and place can be expanded for a broader, even more international audience.
