    • 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.

      • 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).

          • MRUniversity should create an app.

            MRUniversity should create an app similar to Udemy so people can easily do economics on their phones and tablets. I would strongly prefer if there was an MRUnisveristy app that just linked the videos so I can watch it on my phone without the need of an internet browser.

            • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                        • 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.

                                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.

                                    • 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.

                                        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

                                        • I need a solid resource on 'the philosophy of science'

                                          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.
