You´re doing such a great Job, congratulations! I watched all videos from Microeconomics course and Daily Economics.
I had a hard time downloading the videos from Apples Podcast and play them on my iPad, because they are really big. A 3 minute video can be 700 MB size, which is huge, consuming lot of storage on the device, and making it imposible to streaming if you don't have a really fast internet connection.
It would be great if you can compress them.2 votes
Thanks for the suggestion. We do compress them but we’ll see what we can do to compress them further.
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!2 votes
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.
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.2 votes
Thank you! We greatly appreciate the feedback and your support. It’s very rewarding to hear that folks appreciate the effort we pour into our videos.
If you don't want to explain the answers to a test (because of the moral hazard involved) Can you provide a link to the appropriate video?2 votes
I think this is a great idea! Thanks. We’re looking at improving our interactive practice materials and this would be a great feature.
There's two names associated with downloaded files. It is the "Description Title" rather than the File Name that cell phones use to order their listings.
put numbers on the "Description Title" (not the file name) so that we can hear them in the order Alex intended.1 vote

Do you have a page on LinkedIn to 'follow' and so it's also easy to add a credential from MRU on your LinkedIn profile?1 vote
Hi, Rob! Our LinkedIn page can be found here: https://www.linkedin.com/company/marginal-revolution-university
Hi MR Team,
Thanks for developing this awesome website the contents are really cool. I believe, MR can leverage on this content and develop a master program around it. A nominal certifying fees can also be charged from interested candidates to want to get a formal diploma from MRU. I am sure a lot of candidates would love to pursue their masters in economics (online) and get their diplomas from MR.

I am really impressed with the lectures. Like Kahn Academy they are the best I have found in explaining complex ideas clearly and simply.

Improving our practice questions and other study resources is high on our list. Thanks for the feedback. Keep it coming!
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.1 vote
The course is fully complete and live.
