|Module(s)||ACC30020 – Financial Accounting 3
ACC40170 – Advanced Financial Accounting
|Resource||4-person eLearning studio in the Moore Centre for Business.|
|Experience & Impact||Jamie used the 4-person studio to deliver to his module, Advanced Financial Accounting to the students of the Masters of Accounting over a 6 week period in trimester 2 AY20/21. The module has an enrolment of approximately 35 students. The 4 person studio is equipped with a high quality camera and is fully acoustically treated so it is an excellent facility when delivering an online class. In addition, Jamie was able to utilise the document camera in the 4-person studio to work through sample problems with students online.
As well as using the 4-person studio to deliver online classes to his postgraduate students, Jamie also used this space to deliver live tutorials to undergraduate students of the module, Financial Accounting 3. This module has an enrolment of approximately 205 students. For the delivery of this module, Jamie recorded the lecture material for the students, chunking each weekly lecture into short recorded segments and releasing them each week via the module on Brightspace. Students were expected to review the videos and, as a means to engage them with the module content, they were requested to attempt a weekly quiz based on the lecture material. Jamie recorded his content in the 2 person studio, which allowed him not only to add video and slides, but to record worked examples using the document camera as part of the weekly lecture content.
Because Jamie opted to record his lecture content in the 2 person studio, he was able to produce high quality videos in a space purpose built for this type of activity. He was also able to provide a consistency of experience for the students by using the document camera to complete worked examples, a typical feature of his face-to-face lectures.
