The teacher chose to use the Nuvolos web platform. Similar to Moodle, this platform allows to create a course space and to structure it in a way to propose a variety of resources and pedagogical activities. In particular, the teacher makes available pedagogical videos (screencasts developed with Camtasia software), annotated slides, streaming made with Vimeo as well as Zoom recordings (question and answer sessions).
In addition to a classic learning environment, Nuvolos also offers online storage and analysis of large databases via different programming languages (RStudio, Python, Julia, Stata, SPSS and Matlab). For his course, the teacher chose the Jupyter Notebook (Python) programming environment, which allows him to present notes, code and data in an intuitive way to facilitate learning programming.
This platform allows students to acquire solid knowledge of the theoretical subject, but above all to put it into practice by learning to manage and analyze real financial databases, skills that are in high demand on the employment market.
All the resources and activities proposed in the flipped classroom allow students to familiarize themselves with the concepts and to practice the analyses individually in an asynchronous way. The synchronous sessions with the teaching staff become much more participative.
