I strongly care about creating learning materials that are accessible to learners of all ability types. By design, this animation is accessible to both hearing and hard-of-hearing/deaf individuals.

I also think it does an excellent job of explaining a complex and somewhat dated theory by breaking it down into three easy to understand components.
