Ratios for Case Analysis using Voice Thread

Exemplar thumbnail


Chacko Kannothra, Instructor from California State University Dominguez Hills, created a voice thread assignment to help online learners to revise financial and accounting ratios that may be used for case analysis in the strategic management capstone course. The assignment requires students to watch a voice thread (external video) and answer questions provided with the voice thread. Students can submit their responses in multiple formats including audio, video, text, or even upload a file with their responses. This voice thread can be assigned at the beginning of the semester to revisit some of the concepts that students learned in earlier semesters, and used extensively in the capstone course for analysis. Please note that the external video used for this voice thread was recorded by Prof. Melissa Schilling and is available on YouTube.
