Project Summary

Introduction to Finance (COMM 298), a required course for every Sauder BCom student in second year, is regarded as one of the most conceptually challenging courses. The goal of this project is to develop various resources and learning activities that could provide students with adaptable resources that students can utilize according to their needs, allowing students to learn and review difficult concepts at their own pace and equipping students with the necessary background knowledge and skills to succeed in this course. We believe that through providing animated videos, interactive problems, and real-life cases, we can enhance student learning.
