  1. I need help on how to write a proper college paper/academic paper/thesis

    I mean, thesis in the college level, not PhD level. Or how do you call it? I am not a native English speaker.

  2. List of high production value videos?

    I would love if you could compile and post a list of the high production value videos (i.e. not the voice over power point style ones). Thanks!

  3. Need some female faces!

    I am looking through MRU's videos and I am excited to include some in my courses here at St. Catherine University. Perhaps because I teach at a women's college, I am struck by the lack of female economists in the videos. For that matter, there is a lack of diversity on many dimensions. So many good economists out there! Can you tap some who will show my students that their faces are reflected in our field? Thanks!!

  6. 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.

  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. Is it possible to download the presentations used in the videos?

    Being the kind of learner who needs to read and highlight and make notes on lecture slides I would like to find out how possible it would be to get the slides so I can follow along on a printout and make notes as I watch the lecture videos

  9. 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.

  13. 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…

    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”.
