In “The Practicalities of the Stock Market – FXCM/GillenMarkets Case Study”, we provide a suite of videos aimed to educate people about how to buy stocks and funds online with a low-cost broker. We case study the FXCM Securities online broking platform and account maintenance site as well as related information sources.

We use eLearning technologies to simulate the use of software as well as integrate images and voice-over to convey the sales message of the broker. In addition, we have created the “Quantity Calculator”, which acts as a learning aid to intelligently to expedite the process of stock buying preparation and added lots of useful comments and content to the various educational pieces.
