LINCOLN, neb. (AP) – Introductory economics courses at colleges and universities in Nebraska will soon be fully digital.
McGraw-Hill Higher Education and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are developing the first fully digital curriculum for economics.
The curriculum, offered in English and Spanish, will feature a range of multimedia components.
The authors of the course are UNL College of Business Administration economics professors Roger Butters and Carlos Asarta.
Butters says understanding the basic principles of economics is critical for every student today, regardless of their future plans. He says this all-digital curriculum will ensure that each student is successfully grounded in those principles.
The professors say with the all-digital teaching resources, instructors have all the tools they need to teach in a dynamic, engaging and interactive digital and in-class environment.
