  1. Offer course credits via Edx or Coursera

    It will be great if the courses are offered on Edx and Coursera platforms as that might allow more students to learn about your material. Also having an Edx or Coursera will allow you to leverage many things related to verifiation.

  4. Out of Order

    For those that put the podcasts on mobile devices, the order of each unit is lost. The fix is to put a number in the Description Title.

    We don’t have a course specifically designed for that age but I think you could find useful content in both Everyday Economics and Principles. I have a 7 year old and he enjoys them!

    Here are some ideas. Drop us a note at support@mruniversity.com if you have a specific topic in mind. If we don’t have it we might be able to suggest some other places.

  6. Supplement practice materials

    It would be helpful for you to link your lecture videos to useful websites with more practice materials to supplement the videos.

  7. Results of Practice Questions

    As an instructor, I would like for my students to be able to email me the results of their practice questions via your site. Perhaps a button they can click on to enter my email address. OR, a setting on their profile.

  9. I think you guys should add a course (yes a whole course) on Health Economics.

    It is a huge topic but also a very important/applicable one. Most economics schools that I've seen have a whole class to study Health Economics. Usually it is taught as an upper-level course but so are Developmental Economics and International Finance and you already have courses on those. It is a very highly debated topic - often argued by people who have no idea what they're talking about and could use some education!

  10. Simple video without music and animation

    Simple video without music and animation

    Simple video without music and animation would be fast to make and cost less. I would like to see video like Khan academy which are like simple black board learning in a class room. like this one : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShzPtU7IOXs

  11. I need a solid resource on 'the philosophy of science'

    Everyone knows this famous raking of so called sciences: https://xkcd.com/435/

    Good question, where does economics fit in? And what is science?

    How can I participate in so called scientific debate without knowing what science is, in the first place?

    I have a feeling that in economics in general you have much story telling and anecdotes, as compared to the amount of 'science' - whatever that word really means.

    From 14:26 in the video Stanford professors Dave Evans and Bill Burnett argue that in college you learn how to answer questions. In graduate school, you learn how to ask them.…

  12. Add section numbers to each module

    It is difficult to assign individual videos to students. Would be great to number each section and sub-section for easy reference (i.e. The Demand Curve lecture should be 2.1)

  19. Please in a video analyze the efficacy of income redistribution

    Politicians (mostly left leaning) have for years harped on the dangers and social injustice of income inequality and are forever suggesting we "level the playing field" by compelling through taxation etc. the "rich" to "pay their fair share". Would you please analyze economically the benefits and drawbacks of such a strategy. Perhaps also discuss why the inequality occurs in the first place. Talent may be distributed on a bell curve but outcomes follow the Pareto curve. Why? Perhaps this is your opportunity for a future Nobel!

  20. more detail explanation with assumption of theory are required

    I have gone through most videos. Its very short.. it would be better if you provide detail explanation with assumption and conclusion of theory..
