UNSW Finance Course Case Study
The third collaboration of F.Learning Studio with UNSW Sydney (The University of New South Wales) – one of Australia’s leading research and teaching universities. Their business analysis program, along with many other courses, is being redesigned for blended delivery in 2018.
Finance is a complicated subject because it involves lots of mathematics and imaginations. To deliver the financial information efficiently in the online environment, the educators need learning resources that are both informative and engaging while delivering the information to the full context. Thus animations are a perfect choice to explain financial concepts with conversational and humorous tone. They make the lessons easier to digest for even learners with little understanding of financial markets.
F.Learning Studio created a whiteboard animation series for finance. Since whiteboard focuses on storytelling, it is a good narrator for eLearning courses. We kept the visual design simple with the black-and-white concept to emphasize the key points. F.Team also humanized the financial objects like the factories to create a funky and enjoyable tone.
UNSW Accounting Course Case Study
After the success of previous animated learning courses, UNSW Sydney continuously collaborated with F.learning Studio to develop a high-quality reusable animation for accounting.
UNSW expects to apply animation as an innovative way of explaining accounting concepts. Specifically, they want to retell talking-head learning videos in a new fun and meaningful way. The explanation should also be easy for every freshman to understand. However, the professional tone is needed to keep knowledge accurate and informative.
Following small videos concept, we started with breaking down lessons into bize-size animation (from 2 to 5 minutes). Besides, to keep the animation style professional but interesting, we chose 2D motion graphic but minimize the colors to easily captivate learners’ eye. The accounting and mathematical symbol were designed precisely but in a new design for a more friendly look. We also spent time learning accounting knowledge to ensure that animations created will be a perfect visual-supporting tool when along with the voice-over of lecturers.
The accounting lessons then are fascinating to learn, even with the most tedious numbers and theories.
