Effective information acquisition and utilization is a key success factor in the real world, especially in the digital age. In 2004 Thammasat Business School, Thailand initiated a 5-year joint Bachelor and Master Degrees program with the objective to produce life-long learning graduates with integrative skills suitable for working in the changing environment. E-media is proposed to support the teaching-learning experience, especially outside the classroom in order to encourage and train students to be life-long learners and skills developer with self-discipline. This paper presents the triangular model to determine the appropriate e-media and teaching strategy using the accounting core course as the sample. The dialogue between users and teachers serves as one side of the triangle with the students' capability to meet the expectation of the users represents the other side. Teaching and training is the base of triangle where teachers deliver the knowledge and skills needed to the students.
