General MRU Feedback

We welcome any feedback on how we can improve Marginal Revolution University. You can also email us at support AT mruniversity.com.

  1. Is it possible to track your progress?

    For example, to (automatically) mark the videos you've watched (like Khan Academy does).

  4. series of economics courses - 9 month to 12 month curriculum.

    Please consider a series of economics courses - 9 month to 12 month curriculum. online/virtual exam after each course.. and a virtual marks card.... A sequential 6 to 9 courses on economics like a typical virtual course offered by many commercial platforms.
    It would be a great help for Master level learners who can not afford to go to top universities.
    Off curse it would be non-degree and non-credit curriculum purely for learning economics!

  6. PPT

    Is there any PPT files made from your's videos (in fact, that are use in videos)? If not, maybe it's not a bad idea to make it. The PPT files shoud be editable, of course, for better use in any language.

  7. Video on the Green New Deal Proposal

    As we see coming from Congress as well as candidates, the "Green New Deal" proposal is a hot topic, including in my own Economics course. Could you guys possibly make a video about it?

  8. Like Khan Academy, you should add in a points system to identify top viewers/users

    Add gamification to this website! Really, it's like the icing on the cake. Give points for completing a video and/or answering practice questions correctly. I'm not sure how you would code this ... but think about it!

    See Khan Academy for an example of this.

  9. Certificates

    I see that the certificate is not printable. Can any body who achieved a course and printed a certificate tell me how?

    If you have earned a certificate, you should be able to print it as follows:

    1) Login to mruniversity.com
    2) You should see your profile page – if not, click “my profile” on the top navigation bar
    3) On the right you should see certificates you’ve earned – under them you should see “print certificate”.
    4) That will bring up a page formatted for printing. On many print screens you’ll see something like “print backgrounds” and “print header and footers” options. Click print background “on”. Leave headers and footers “off”.

  13. MRUniversity should create an app.

    MRUniversity should create an app similar to Udemy so people can easily do economics on their phones and tablets. I would strongly prefer if there was an MRUnisveristy app that just linked the videos so I can watch it on my phone without the need of an internet browser.

  14. Add a course on public choice economics

    Please add a course on public choice economics. There's an excellent list of MRU courses for learning to think like an economist. But strongly believe another function of these courses could/should be to make us better, more knowledgeable citizens regarding public policy issues. And that means we need a course in public choice economics — "politics without the romance" — i.e., what economic analysis can tell us about the political decision-making process. That way we'll be better able to determine whether free-market or government-driven solutions would likely work better for addressing particular issues. And we'll each have a better "BS…

  15. Contemporary economists

    Maybe some videos about the most influential contemporary economists and their ideas, would be an interesting addition. And the main schools of thoughts of our times and how are they, in practice, influence the governance and the markets. Best Regards, Alexandra Popa

  16. it would be great to give some lessons on Econometrics.

    Econometrics is a vital section for economics but unfirtunately there is not short course available.
    it would be very helpfull to introduce a course about econometrics.

  18. Using MRUniversity in the Classroom

    I'm considering letting my students take your Great Economists course as extra credit, but I'm concerned that they'll get the certificates without actually doing anything. Are the exams locked until all the videos are viewed? Are the exam questions randomized so as to prevent students from sharing answers? Thanks.

    Hi Jennifer,
    At this time we haven’t locked down the exams in the way you describe. They are more meant to be a way for students to test themselves at this point rather than a rigorous from of accreditation or anything. We might get there someday.

    Thanks for writing in and please continue sharing your feedback. We are trying to provide a valuable supplement for professors/teachers, so your feedback is greatly appreciated.

    We’re working on a teacher resource section – anything you’d like to see there?

  19. Continuous Play Option.

    It would be awesome to be able to queue up a series of videos. I'm listening to/watching the Development Economics series, and many of the videos are only a few minutes long. I like to listen while I paint my house, and I keep having to stop and run back to the computer to play the next video. It would be nice to be able to select several to play in a row. I could watch/listen to a whole section in one go.

    Hi Katie,
    Thanks for the suggestion. There are two ways to do this:

    1) YouTube playlists
    If you use a YouTube playlist like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Meo0s54s1sw&list=PL-uRhZ_p-BM4SmRr1p6WZnfym2zP2O0LH&index=2
    it will continuously play. We have playlists setup for some of the courses and are in process of setting up all of them.
    2) iTunes
    We are posting videos to iTunes, which will allow you to do continuous play. We also have just the audio podcast, which combines a whole section’s videos into one podcast. We’re rolling on both the video and audio podcasts continually. You should see more up soon – let me know if you have a particular course you want first.

    Hopefully this helps!

    Roman
