  1. 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.

          • Hello! Could you do a series on Development Project Planning? For reference, this is a course I am taking at Carleton University (ECON3509).

            My prof is the worst for this class and it has a lot of confusing topics, like cost benefit analysis etc. He sucks at teaching but you guys are great so please save my grades and make a playlist of videos for this course!!!

                  • A list of objectives, you know with the whole Bloom's taxonomy verb plus concept

                    Just like a real course from an accredited college/university would provide (possibly), I would like to have a list of objectives. The questions at the end are a nice way to test myself, but I like to create my own tests to check on my learning process - can I compare/contrast, explain, list, blah, blah, blah. Thanks!

                    • I feel so marginalized! (which is a good thing on this web site)

                      Could you in the future do a segment with a little analysis comparing the returns of rental property vs the stock market over the last 50 years? Is the rate of return of equities still higher? Would you also include the effects of tax write-offs and leverage as well? Evidently residential real estate is less volatile than equities and has a lower Sharpe ratio. Does that mean one should use leverage more freely with real estate than stocks to boost returns?

                          • 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…

                                  We have a way to do this already! If you go to mruniversity.com and look at any video page, you should see a “translate” button under the video.

                                  Clicking on it will take you to a tool that allows you to add subtitles. We greatly appreciate any additions we get!

                                  For example, here’s the link for the first video in our Micro course. http://www.amara.org/en/videos/AfeywxXg5Wel/info/introduction-to-economics/

                                        • In Personal Finance Investment Advice Add Video(s) on Cost Averaging and Rebalancing

                                          Please note I also added this idea under Money Skills but it does not appear that those entries receive much attention. A segment on cost averaging with an arithmetic example of how it works to the investor's benefit would be very useful, as would a discussion about how rebalancing can be used to manage risk and to automatically (in a sense) buy low and sell high.
