In recent years, governments, enterprises, and individuals have firmly expressed a growing interest in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The advances in emerging information technology have facilitated the widespread application of ICT tools in organizational and cross-organizational daily activities. Higher education institutions are places where knowledge is created and acquired; however, knowledge is seldom successfully applied to teaching activities. Unlike primary and secondary schools, large classes are commonplace in many such institutions. These factors implicitly reduce valuable opportunities for teacher-student interaction, and this has resulted in the prevalence of teacher-centered learning methods. Moreover, entrepreneurship education has emerged as a new prominent discipline of higher education in Taiwan. According to website of college curriculum resources, in the 2011 academic year, a total of 129 schools offered entrepreneurship-related courses. This covered 284 departments and institutes with 746 courses and up to 28,623 course participants. In comparison with the 2015 academic year, 135 schools offered entrepreneurship-related courses, covering 408 departments and institutes with 1,282 courses, and the number of course enrollments was up to 49,962. In the past five years, the number of departments and institutes, courses offered, and course participants has increased substantially. While COVID-19 has a significant impact on the execution of the research project, the length of the research project and the grace period granted by Ministry of Science & Technology provide some flexibility for the principal investigator in carrying out the project. This final project report focuses mainly on the research outcomes and its deliverable. This project approaches the use of digital instructional tools for entrepreneurship education at the macro, meso, and micro levels through qualitative and quantitative methods to investigate online and in-class learning on campus and off campus. The methods include systematic review, theoretical framework construction, survey, experimental design, case study and expert opinion for different research participants. This project generates 12 international journal articles. The PI is able to organize three special issues on entrepreneurship education and receives two research awards.
