Principles of Economics

Professor John Taylor’s Principles of Economics, an introductory course on economics, has enjoyed several runs as both a MOOC in summer 2014 and as a pioneering fully online, for-credit summer course for undergraduates in the summers of 2014 and 2015. The for-credit versions utilized the MOOC’s online videos and course material, but with additional content in the form of assessments and online interactions. John Taylor has reviewed his own experiences in the Wall Street Journal and on CNBC’s Squawk Box, which serve as testimonials on the success of the courses and the variable uses of these online tools.
