How do these MOOCs or free online courses work?
MOOCs are designed for an online audience, teaching primarily through short (5-20 min.) pre recorded video lectures, that you watch on weekly schedule when convenient for you. They also have student discussion forums, homework/assignments, and online quizzes or exams.
I have completed 9 parts and now I am on Part-10. I am very happy that I am taking this course. It is very rich, highly compact with information, principles, and examples. Dr. Navarro is an expert on his subject and his lectures are lucid and flowing. However, in order to get the most out of the course, I have to go back to it, or at least to some of the topics, and bone up on them for better digestion.
Therefore, I am looking for a set of the notes or transcripts for the whole 12 modules. Anybody has them? How can I get my eyes on them?
Unsexy but perfectly adequate MacroEcon 101. Illustrates theories by drawing on 20C history of changes in US economic policies. (Prof. Navarro himself inclines towards monetarism - IMHO, but I might be wrong.) 80% of the grade is in the final exam, so the (extensive) 11 weekly quizzes are intended more for learning than grading. (Course would be perfect for a real-world self-study group!) I needed a course to cover the basics and plug my gaps. This did the job nicely.
Glad I completed the course and passed all the tests. I still like to put my hands on the transcript of the lectures for future reference. Before too long the information will start to look like a hazy memory. If someone knows how to get the lecture notes or transcript of the course please let me know.
