About
The project centred on converting a number of traditional lecture slides into interactive teaching tools that could be used both inside and outside the lecture. They allow greater student engagement and understanding and give the tutor an indication of student understanding of the subject matter. The tools explain complex financial models and example case studies though interactive diagrams, activities and formative feedback. All the tools can be accessed through a range of devices: laptops, tablets and mobiles and were made available pre-lecture as a preparation activity and post-lecture for students to reinforce or revise their understanding of the subject.
