  1. Is there a recommended course order?

    For someone who has little background in economics, is there a recommended course order? The website appears to list the courses in an arbitrary order. Udacity categorizes courses as Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. Is there a similar ordering for MRU courses?

    Hello,
    That’s a good question. In general we try to make all of our videos accessible to a beginner. The Everyday content is definitely the most introductory in nature – we’re working on more introductory level content.

    However, that shouldn’t discourage you from checking out the other courses such as Development Economics or Great Economists. Those are both very accessible as well.

    Thanks for your question.

  3. Awesome Site!!!

    Without a doubt THE best way to learn about economics! All of the videos are very interesting, easy to understand and very slick with high production values.

    Most importantly, it gives the student of economics a very solid intuitive grasp of the subject.

    Many thanks for making this open and freely available to the public.

  4. I wouls

    I would add more questions and real world exercises after each video, so that we can better understand theory in action.

  8. Downloading should be easier

    Currently I can download all the videos of a course using iTunes or using the link below the video.

    But:

    1. iTunes is a mess. Classes appear out of order or do not appear at all. Some courses are not there.

    2. Downloading one audio/video file at a time is tiring. There should be an option to download all files from a course with just one click. You could even use BitTorrent.

  9. In Development Economics (and possibly elsewhere), add David Ellerman

    David Ellerman has been a major thinker for over 40 years on democratic firms and development economics, as well and philosophical foundations (e.g. inalienable rights and property theory).

  10. App with the videos as well as the practice problems

    MRU Should create an app where you can download the videos to your phone, and be able to answer the practice problems. This should also be integrated into a tracking system tied to your profile.

  12. In your introductory lecture to Great Economists, you say that you will offer a course on Marxian economics. Is that still your plan?

    I believe that a course on Marxian economics would be a natural addition to the Great Economists course. It would allow us to understand how the Theory of Value evolved from Smith and Ricardo to Marx.

    It would also be interesting to see how Marxism and the Marginal Utility theorists view the world differently.

    And finally, we could look at later theorists like Joseph Schumpeter and David Harvey.

  13. Can you please add a feature explaining the reasoning behind each correct solution?

    Like Khan Academy, after each question is answered correctly, I feel it'd strengthen the comprehension of a problem to have a quick feature that includes the reasoning process.

  15. Translations

    Translating the lectures or adding subtitles to them would help non-English speakers learn about economics. I am thinking of older persons in France, which often have never been exposed to sound economic thinking.

  17. Thank you

    Im not sure if you know how your organization has impacted me. I was not aware of economics until I started your courses and began reading books. I then decided to go to school for economics. I am now in my last class in graduate school finishing an MBA with a concentration in economics. When I textbooks failed to arrive on time, I ordered your books on macro and micro economics. With your textbook, I was able to pass the course with 96%.

    Your textbooks are very helpful and easy to read. Your approach to teaching economics is phenomenal. I…

  18. Remove the drowning chicks section from the Price Ceiling video

    I can't show this to my skeptical friends, because they will be distracted by this appeal to emotion. They will correctly object that drowning millions of chicks may have been more humane than raising them under standard conditions. So if I am talking about price ceilings with a friend and I send them this video, I expect it to backfire.
