                  • International Finance Certificate??

                    I hear there are no exams yet for International Finance and one will not get any certificates unless you pass the exam. So what must I do to get a certificate for this course?

                      • 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

                        • Please make sure that the information in the practice questions is correct

                          Please make sure that the information in the practice questions is correct. I just tried to answer one of the practice questions on GDP and it marked my correct answer wrong. I double checked my answer in the book and I was correct and the website was wrong. This problem could cause people to learn false information. :/

                            Thank you for submitting your concern about the GDP practice question. We take making sure that all of our questions are correct very seriously. We have reviewed all the questions on GDP and can verify that they are all correct. If you can let me know which is the question you think is wrong, we can try address it specifically.

                            There is one question, the second question in the “Splitting GDP” video, that is a bit of trick question. Maybe this is the one you are referring to. It may seem that the answer should be (e), but it is actually (d). The reason is that not all of government spending is counted in GDP; only government purchases are. For example, social security payouts are government expenses but not purchases, and these are not counted toward GDP. The video explains why this is so: GDP count goods…

                            • Present Value - Savings, Investment Spending, and Financial System

                              Firstly I would just like to say what an excellent and helpful resource you are providing!! Thank you!!
                              I am currently enrolled in online college courses and taking both Micro and Macro. This site has been incredibly helpful to my learning. This week was Savings, investment Spending, and Financial System, and I am hung up on Present Value... particularly the different manners of calculating it per scenario. I watched all the videos in line with the learning and feel an expansion on this would be most helpful.
                              Keep up the good work! Can't thank you enough.
                              ~Alydia

                                1. The questions or comments get posted by hitting space or enter which is pretty annoying.
                                2. There is no option to delete and edit qustions
                                3. For the practice questions, mark the correct answers in green.
                                4. In the feedback form, the explain your idea box closes if you enter the idea name

                                    • there should also be a comment section

                                      so that we can give feedbacks about a particular video and what was missing

                                        Please get a graduate student to go through the comments section and clean out the inappropriate advertisements. Some of my students are minors and do not want to get in trouble for exposing them to advertisements for sex workers or images of women in skimpy outfits.
