Learn More About Our EdBooks Economics Products
A Conceptual Focus
EdBooks Economics is a suite of four lower-division and general education products focused on fundamental economic concepts and how they apply to the world around us. In each of our products, these key concepts are reinforced via explanations by leading experts, experiential activities designed to promote personal application, and real-world examples that demonstrate economics in action. Beyond this conceptual focus, EdBooks Economics also stands apart for its coverage of (1) Political Economy, (2) Morality of Economic Behavior, (3) Public Choice, (4) Law and Economics from a presumption-of-liberty perspective, and (5) Organizational Economics.

EdBooks Economics features a flexible curriculum model designed for faculty customization. To make things even easier, we make each product available in pre-packaged options for popular learning environments: traditional, hybrid, and online. Moreover, EdBooks provides its concierge service to all adopting faculty, meaning personal assistance with learning design content customization, and course implementation. Our goal is to help instructors deliver his or her ideal personal teaching solution.

EdBooks Economics Features
Key Concept Videos
We provide clear and engaging video explanations for each key concept covered in our multimedia books. These explanations are delivered by members of our Expert Panel and are reinforced with graphics, animation, and text, making it easy for students to follow along and take notes.
Our readings provide concept introductions, examples, and commentary to help students contextualize important information. We blend video clips, animations, and pop-up glossary definitions into our pages to add perspective and encourage student engagement. We also embed polls and quick comprehension checks to help students evaluate their understanding of the content.
Experiential Learning Resources
A principal goal for each EdBooks lesson is to move students successfully from information to personal reflection and application. We provide story-based, scenario explorations for each lesson, as well as selected case studies for use with in-class or online discussions.
Discussion and Collaboration Assignments
We know how important it is for students to gain practical experience in teamwork and leadership. That’s why we design our multimedia books to harness the benefits of class or group discussions and group collaboration. We provide discussion assignments and collaboration activities for each EdBooks lesson.
Formative and Summative Quizzing
Our multimedia books include formative and summative assessments that can be auto-graded. This provides important self-check opportunities for students throughout each lesson, and also saves valuable faculty time. Instructors can also edit existing quizzes or add new ones to meet their course needs.
Study Tools and Support
EdBooks makes it easy for students to take notes and engage in conversations with classmates. We also provide contextualized glossary definitions and text transcripts for all video content. Additionally, each EdBooks lesson features a toolbox of carefully selected resources for additional information or practice.
