Interactive Modules in Accounting: Mary Billings, Accounting

For each key business question in this course, students watch a walk-through video examining a real life example of the question and relevant accounting principles and procedures. They then complete an interactive exercise where they apply the procedures from the walk-through to a new company. The interactive activity provides guidance and feedback on the student’s choices and links back to the video walkthrough when students need help completing their analysis.

Online Tracking, Behavioral Profiling, and Privacy Rights: Michael Posner, The Center for Business and Human Rights

A student fellow project that mapped links between consumers, companies supplying or publishing advertisements, and data collectors, brokers, and analytics firms. Students produced an interactive graphic where users could input information and watch the flow of data change on the screen. Students also wrote a research report outlining business incentives and risks to privacy in different parts of the ecosystem. The reports were published on the Business and Human Rights Center’s website.
