Despite technology's growing presence in society, accounting classrooms have lagged behind other disciplines in utilizing educational animations. This is primarily due to inconclusive research and institutional resistance. In this thesis, I cover existing research on the benefits of visualizations as well as the significance of educational animations. To supplement my arguments for how these studies are lacking, I have made two educational animations covering introductory concepts of financial statements and the time value of money.


The videos can be viewed on my portfolio website, under the animation tab.

This thesis is restricted to the Claremont Colleges current faculty, students, and staff.
