Business-IT Alignment (BITA) is an important matter especially for researchers and practitioners but both groups frequently find it complicated and time consuming to learn about BITA. To facilitate the teaching and learning of the alignment process a web-based tool for the assessment of business-IT alignment has been designed, developed and evaluated. The aim of this study is to describe and discuss the design and evaluation of the web-based BITA software’s usability and functionality as a teaching asset. Findings show that the BITA tool enables the students to assess and analyze business-IT alignment in an efficient manner. Moreover the BITA tool enables students to understand companies’ behavior regarding the business-IT alignment over time. The BITA tool also helps the researchers in their respective areas to focus on one or a group of companies and conduct research regarding their business-IT alignment.
