EconLib: Special Edition
YOUR Source for Economics Online



"No one is so brave that he is not disturbed by something unexpected."
~Julius Caesar


It seems we've entered a whole new age in just the last couple of weeks. Many teachers- and, necessarily, students- have been thrust into online education. This impacts just about everyone we know.

For over two decades, Econlib has been committed to bringing you the best economics on the web, and our commitment remains as strong as ever. It is our sincere hope that this special e-newsletter can provide some resources to help bridge the gap between live and online learning.

Over the last week, we've shared some tips and thoughts on teaching online:

Below we highlight some of the resources we hope are most useful. Now more than ever, if there are additional resources we might supply you with, please let us know. We are always available at econlib@libertyfund.org.

E-Learning with Econlib

Our video collection includes interviews with many of the world's most prominent economists, as well as An Animal That Trades, a biographical video series about the life and relevance of Adam Smith.

All our videos feature complementary questions for further thought and discussion, and can be easily used as student assignments as well. Our interviewees include:
High School and College Economics Topics
Econlib Topics Guides collect our most pertinent resources, broken down by the most prevalent concepts taught in high school and college economics course.

You can also sign up for monthly resource collections, QuickPicks.

Over the last year, Ecolib has hosted several online reading groups. You can find links to all the books we've read together thus far, plus PDFs of the entire set of discussion questions for each book. Click here to find all the links.
EconTalk Extras

EconTalk Extras are our follow-ups to our weekly podcasts, designed with conversation in mind. Comments on each Extra are open for 30 days (as with EconLog and EconTalk). We'd encourage your students to share their thoughts. (Don't worry; it's moderated!) The questions are also ideal for sparking offline conversations, and can make excellent writing assignments as well.
