The objective of this paper is to identify the challenges that online teaching and learning involves, with particular reference to the online teaching of banking and finance. A case study method has been used to investigate the challenges in online teaching of banking and finance. The study shows that while the content of the unit could be delivered online very efficiently; many operational problems could mar this mode from becoming an effective teaching and learning mode. The author taught the banking and finance course online at the University of Southern Queensland during semester 1 of 2001. The author designed this unit, prepared the course material, delivered it online and assessed the unit online. At that point of time and even today no University in Australia delivers this unit. Another important feature of this paper is the quick survey the author did about the use of WebCT by undergraduate finance students at University of Canberra and the comparison of his experience of using the online technology at USQ and the one at UC. The challenges faced and the way these were overcome could be of interest to those interested in teaching banking and finance online
