Movies-Door-2-Door.Com: How Accounting Helped Make the Difference by Singapore Management University
One of the greatest challenges when teaching accounting is to help students see the relevance and value of the course content for their future careers.

Accounting is often presented in a proper theoretical order, but this is inconsistent with the way business owners and managers face in the business world, from formulating a business plan, sourcing finances and funding, implementing the plan and monitoring results.
Movies-Door2Door.com is intended to be a supplementary resource in an introductory accounting course, at the undergraduate or graduate level. The issues are presented in the logical order of an entrepreneurial endeavour and may jump across theoretical coverage in a typical accounting course.
The Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling by University of Houston
Digital Storytelling is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. As with traditional storytelling, most digital stories focus on a specific topic and contain a particular point of view. However, as the name implies, digital stories usually contain some mixture of computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips and/or music. Digital stories can vary in length, but most of the stories used in education typically last between two and ten minutes. And the topics that are used in Digital Storytelling range from personal tales to the recounting of historical events, from exploring life in one’s own community to the search for life in other corners of the universe, and literally, everything in between.
