05. Understanding Accounts – Finance Uncovered


In 2021-2022, we developed 4 e-learning modules about ‘Understanding Accounts’ for Finance Uncovered (FU), an organisation that has been training and supporting journalists and activist campaigners from around the world to produce hard-hitting financial stories for over a decade. The training programme we developed helps this target group with cracking the fear for numbers in company accounts, and introducing them to forensic accountancy and financial investigative journalism.

The source text was written by Finance Uncovered experts. Our instructional designer worked with the FU team to draft the script and include many hands-on exercises based on real-world examples. A lot of work went into making sure the language would be easy to understand for non-financial experts and ESL speakers.

The development team used Articulate Rise/StoryLine/Vyond to ensure the modules are engaging, pretty and easy to navigate. Visuals include videos, GIFs, diagrams, dynamic infographics, and illustrations. We used professional actors for the narration.
