    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.

  3. Love this course! When will section on insurance and moral hazard be complete?

    Expand discussion of why health care is burdened with market failures (adverse selection, information asymmetry, moral hazard) and whether introducing high deductible insurance plans will encourage price transparency, thus bringing health costs back to earth.

  5. Improving long term learning and comprehension of material

    The videos and questions are engaging, but without frequent and spaced reinforcement of the concepts and terminology, the ideas will not embed in learners long term memory. students take a multiple choice question and pass but do they really understand the concepts. This is the biggest failure of MOOCs. I recommend including on the website some space repetitive questioning of the material to help push the ideas from short term memory to long term memory. There is a lot to earn from language learning and flashcard websites and apps like Anki, Duolingo and Memrise. You can even develop on Memrise…

    Thank you Bryon! No surprise that such a smart comment comes from a fellow Hokie!

    I agree that there is much to be done to provide practice materials to reinforce concepts. That’s definitely on our radar to improve.

    I’ll check out those apps you mentioned. I appreciate the feedback – feel free to email me directly at roman at mruniversity dot com.

  6. Using MRU with flipped classroom; date for Macro?

    Your videos are great and I use them in my classroom and post them on my course website as a kind of hybrid flipped classroom.

    When will you have videos up for principles of macro? Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing! We’ll be in contact with you as we’re very interested in how our videos are working in a flipped model. You can send feedback directly to me at roman at mruniversity dot com as well.

    As for Macro, it’s on deck for this year. I’ll add you to the professor list for course announcements so that you get notified.

  7. Better spam control and author authentication needed

    Comments and discussions under the videos could be very useful only if they are kept free from spam. Spammers often post links and ads. One way could be to designate some long time or serious users as moderators.

    PS: In case you start such a program, I would love to help with moderation of content

  8. 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”.

  9. Misleading wording in one quiz question

    Hi, I just took the quiz following the video "A price is a signal wrapped up in an incentive." The last phrase in the answer to question 6 describes the equilibrium price as "desired by no one." What is meant here is "the equilibrium price is not the desire of any one person," but the way it's written can just as easily be interpreted as "the equilibrium price is quite disliked by everyone." It's ambiguous that way. One way to clear up the ambiguity is just to change it to "…desired by no one person." Indeed, that wording appears in…

  12. Awesome and generous! thank you!

    Thank you so much for providing this. I RELLY appreciate your time and effort.
    This is an awesome resource and useful not only for teaching first timers, but also for a great resource for us weathered economists to pick up illustrative examples to explain to policy makers and others. I'm a huge fan.

  14. Money, investment, savings: the oil for economic wheels

    Direct trade is good for small, introductory examples, but real economies run on more finely grained money. Trace how money is earned, spent, saved, invested, spent some more, and grows in the process.

    Outstanding lectures so far, thank you. Please continue.

    The basics of Western economics are not taught, at least not often, to students in (still Communist) China and India, and immigrants are sometimes baffled by market manipulations, loans, leases, and so forth. Even technical young people, in computer-related industries and IT, often lack the backgrounds in basic Econ to, e.g., understand their mortgages, margin accounts at brokerages, and…
