Firstly, thank you for the free classes.
I think this is a very important section for the course, but I must confess that I got a little frustrated by what felt like a rapid change of tracks. We were getting acquainted with central and basic ideas of development economics, and then started hearing about individual contributions. I know the course is just getting started, but I think that in the future, maybe this part should be presented in a later stage.
He is a very good economist and an important figure in the revival of classical liberal ideas for India. I think he has had less influence over the research program of other economists, but in any case we may include him in future editions of this course. Obviously many difficult choices had to be made.
It'd be nice if you could include the duration of the videos in the sublistings (i.e., "Guide to leader thinkers - 1:43"), so that if I only have 10 minutes I'd be able to pick out a video from the list instead of opening a bunch of them trying to find one that suits my current availability.
If possible, it would be useful to have a check mark appear for the videos that we have watched and/or submitted the practices questions. A format like Khan Academy's.
