Very informative course to get a basic understanding of the pivotal and indispensable concepts of Macroeconomics and to embark on a life-long journey of studying the tenets of this beautiful science.

The course helps you to have an insight about a lot of concpets in a really less amount of time. Moreover, most of the concepts are being explained with real life examples in a very well planned way

Good introductory courses to macro-economy. Don't cost too much time each week and you learn a lot. But due to its brevity, many materials can not go deep. Especially for the last two weeks, the materials are mostly descriptive, lacking scientific models. I have to search for other materials to better understand it.

Although the course cover everything there can be in Macro-economics, the course is tightly bound with US economy. Also the questions, some of them, in quiz are exact from the slides. I think there could have been changes. None the less, it was best thing i have learnt in past 6-12 months. Awesome going through it.

Well managed and full of examples course. It reflects well the "state of the art" of modern macroeconomics, but fails in giving a large perspective on the other macroeconomics schools. Overall it can be a glorious start in learning macroeconomics, explaining well the basis for a more deep study. Recommended.

I enjoyed very much taking this course. It helped me to refresh most of my macroeconomics knowledge as well as getting a good perspective of the impact of financial policies and the various schools of economics. I missed though some reading material to get deeper in some of these learnings.

Excellent course. As it teaches all the fundamental on the macroeconomics and grained better understanding on the circular flow of money and the various monetary theories. This is helpful as since in daily lives we came upon the daily news of whats happening in the Globe.

This course breaks down macroeconomics to a level that a beginner can understand, however, I wish the instructor had made available downloadable notes in either PDF or PowerPoint with the examples, graphs, key points etc. It would have been very helpful as study tools.

The course material is good but please make the tests a bit more engaging and moreover why do most of the answers have to be the first option? The quality of the quiz is low, the questions do not encourage us to think and options are poorly arranged.

I spent 2 hours per week learning the video lessons and managed to pass weekly quiz. However, passing final exam requires more time on reviewing. Overall, the lecture is clear and comprehensive, and it helps me to understand the real world better!

tl;dr : I recommend it.
Good introduction to macroeconomics. Gives lots of insights and mechanisms. Long course, but it was necessary. A second part would be much appreciated, maybe with more econometrics to give a measure to all these effects.

Brilliant course; really well structured. Modules aren't too arduous - just the right amount of time spent on each, and applicable to the real world. As a European, I would have preferred more global, less US-centric examples/case studies.

Either lecture slides should be provided or the lecture should be held in continuous writing format(in which the instructor explains things by writing) instead of explaining using pre-prepared slide(saves time and helps in note-making)

Enjoyable and informative course. Possible room for improvement areas were that it felt as though the information and delivery were dated and a few of the quiz questions had 2 correct answers (unless I was very much mistaken)

Great refreshment or intermediary/intro course- too much focus on the US system at first and perhaps a disproportionate focus on schools of thought, but extremely useful, pragmatic and learner friendly.

Very concise introduction into macroeconomics. The powerpoint presentation can however still be improved. Sometimes reading directly from the slides makes it hard for the learner to follow the lecture.

A great introductory course which covers almost all of the important topics of Macroeconomics. However, it is entirely US-centric and presents a very dim picture in the lecture on developing economies.

good study for everyone!
could be improved the vizualization: there's only slides and voice over them.
the connection to the history facts permit a deeper understanding of the subject!

I think the best part of this course is its diversity. The course is so well structured that theories of several important school of economics are discussed, with their applications in the history.

Good course, though could use a few more examples to work over math and graphical concepts. Shuffle the answers to quiz questions more. When in doubt, guessing "A" was nearly always correct.

PPts could have been provided for future references and was very interesting to learn the principles with examples. Some pdfs could have been provided for numericals as support material.

Great program. I spent most of my summer and fall completing this great online course. Now I understand a little bit better the Fiscal Policy and Monetary policy!

The course is definitely helpful in introducing the macroeconomics topics, but Self Study and further reading on the topics is required to completely understand the topics.

very lucid explanation of macro economics concepts and very rational linkage with the Historical perspective, can include some more insight on developing country like India

Too many subjects in one course: suggest to split the course into two.
Update content with current/recent cases.
Consider adding open end & reflective questions to the tests

Great content and organization. One star off because lectures tend to be dense with information and there is a lack of repetition for the more complex concepts.

Liked the historical approach. Also a lot of practical examples. Unfortunately the video format is less lively than a lecture recorded in public.
