Students can subscribe to the Video Study Guides on the TextbookVideos web-site or purchase them from iTunes. Educational institutions can also license the content for groups, or as turnkey learning material for schools' online Microeconomics courses.
The Video Study Guides contain a total of 149 videos. These professionally produced videos range in length from a few seconds to 6 minutes and combine animation, b-roll, graphics and professor interviews to help teach key economics concepts in minutes.
These short videos teach the key economics concepts that professors across North America identified as being the key ideas that students found the most difficult to learn. The videos are formatted to play on computers and mobile devices, so that students can learn wherever their devices take them.
Company President and study guide author, Jay Moulton, explained the genesis of the study guide, "We invested nearly two years developing the Real World Economics video series. After interviewing hundreds of economics professors, students and educators across North America, we know that there is a need for an engaging way for students to study and prepare for classes, tests and exams. This is our response to that need."
