Please share your personal journey through Sam and Joris's book, Economic Studies. We are excited to hear how Educators are using the book to construct their own courses, and how students can shape their own Economic education through the book. 

Looking forward to hearing and sharing our experiences as we Rethink Economics Education.

Upload box guide:

 

Inet Ed. Student

Nov 30, 2020

Uploading

Dashboard

Every user has a "Dashboard" on INET ED platform where they can view material they have contributed and material they have bookmarked.

To contribute material, go to your Dashboard, select "Content" tab and click "Add New Content".  This will bring up an "Upload box".

Upload Box 

The "Upload box" has various fields to be entered by the contributor (refer to figure below).

(1) Title - enter the title of the material (e.g. "Macroeconomics for Poets")

(2) Author - enter the full name of the author(s) of the material (e.g. "William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge").  Only enter your own name if you are the author of the material yourself.

(3) Institution/Source - if material from the author is used at a particular institution, enter its name (e.g. "University of the Lake District"), or if the material comes from a website, enter the website's name (e.g. "Lake Economics website")

(4) Description - Provide a brief description of the material, and perhaps recommendation on usage.

e.g. "Lecture notes on Macroeconomics for Poets, by William Wordsworth and S.T. Coleridge, covering basics of GDP, output determination and overview of trade cycles, economic growth, and industrialization, and its ethical implications for society and natural resources.  Suitable as a supplement for intermediate course for poets, or advanced course for industrialists."

(5) Difficulty level - choose a difficulty level.  For simplicity, we have limited it to four levels. We leave it to your judgment, but their rough equivalences are:

(6) Add Thumbnail - if you have an image you would like to use as a thumbnail of the content, you can upload the image here (various image formats supported, jpg, png, etc.).

(7) Select Category (Fields) - choose which of the six category fields (Micro, Macro, Methods,  Policy, Thought, History) best fits your content.  (You can select more than one field if the material overlaps). 

(8) Select Tags (Topics) - choose up to three topic tags (subtopics) which your content best fits (relevant topic tags will be visible once you select category fields in (7)).  

e.g. if you select "Macro" in category field, you can select "Macro Basics" and "Economic Development" in topic tags.  If you select more than one category field, then the available topic tags will be collectively visible.  Choose carefully as you cannot select more than three topic tags per content piece (see appendix for list).   

(9) Select Restrictions - if you want your content to be only visible to other teachers and not visible to students (e.g. quiz answers), please select "Restrict access to teachers only".  Otherwise leave it as "Generally accessible", and it will be visible to all.  

(10) Select Type (Formats) - INET ED hosts a variety of teaching materials in various formats.  These include:

We are in the process of expanding the range of material types to accommodate further file formats.  Be sure to convert Word documents, Power Points, etc. into PDF format before uploading.

(11) Embed URL - this entry is only accessible if you selected "Video" in format type (10).  In this case, go to the site where the video sits and select the video embedding link which you can then paste in the "Embed URL" entry in the upload box.

(e.g. go to Youtube website, right-click on the desired video, select "Copy video URL", a link that looks like "https://youtu.be/urLFQ4Ov_7U" will be automatically copied, then return to INETED and directly paste into the "Embed URL" entry in upload box.) 

(12) Add Asset - this entry is only accessible if you selected "PDF", "Image", "Audio" or "Video" in format type (10).  It will open a browser window into your computer so you can select the file to be uploaded.

(13) Article Text - this entry is only accessible if you selected "Article" in format type (10).  This allows you to write content directly as plain text in the "Article Text" box.  

Do NOT select "Article" to upload long essays.  For that, it is probably best to convert to PDF and upload it as PDF.

 Use "Article" when you want the content to merely point a hyperlink to a content page on another website.  In the "Article Text" box, you can write a brief description and then use the hyperlink button to enter the hyperlink.  

(e.g. in the Article Text section you can write: "Go to 'Poets on Industrial Revolution' essay at the Lake Economics website " and then copy and paste the link http://www.lakeconomics.org/industrial.htm).

(14) Confirm Terms of Service - a reminder of our Terms of Service, that you must not violate copyright, that you have copyright over the material you are uploading, or that it is in public domain.

(15) Add - submits the content to INET ED platform.  Only press this once.

If the fields are filled successfully, the content will be uploaded.  You should receive a brief pop-up notice that the content has been uploaded.

Materials

Types  

INET ED aims to host any and all types of supplementary materials for use by educators in economics and related social sciences, which may be used to inform the construction of a course or a supplement to it.  We invite teachers to contribute educational material they have available to the INET ED platform.   We accept:

  • Syllabi
  • Lecture notes
  • Explanatory essays
  • Quizzes and exams
  • Data
  • Video courses
  • Audio series

Materials can be uploaded directly and be hosted onto INET ED (see "Uploading" below) or be made available by hyperlink to other sites where those materials sit.

 Fields and Topics  

For ease of browsing, materials are organized into six category fields:

  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics
  • Economic Thought
  • Economic History
  • Methods
  • Public Policy 

which are further broken into topics within each field (see appendix for list).  

Every piece of content material will be tagged with field and topic tags to make them more accessible on the site.  A single piece can have more than one field or topic tag. 

To find available materials, click on any of the Browse Content field buttons (Micro, Macro, Methods, etc.)  The results can be sorted by date or popularity.  You can click a topic tag to narrow your browsing even further.

Public vs. Restricted

Some material on the INET Platform is public, other material might be restricted to teachers only.

Teachers may access any and all material on INET ED platform.

Learners (which includes students and the general public) can only access material that is made public.  They will not see, and will not be able to access, content which is "restricted" to teachers only.

When uploading, you can select whether your material will be generally-accessible ("Public"), or restricted to teachers only ("Restricted").  We recommend keeping it general, except for materials like quiz and exam answers (which ought to be restricted, to ensure students cannot access them).

Curation  

Only Admins and Teachers can contribute and upload materials to the INET ED platform.   The rest of the public ("Learners") can read and use material, but cannot contribute materials to the platform.

We expect that verified Teachers will conscientiously upload materials that furthers the educational purpose of the INET ED platform.  That means we reserve the right to exclude some material which is contrary to that mission (e.g. commercial or promotional in nature, copyright violations).  We may also make suggestions for improvement (e.g. layout, formatting).

To secure the quality of the INET ED platform materials, we have established a protocol where INET ED administrators need to individually review and approve uploaded material before it is made accessible on the platform.  If there are suggestions for improvement, administrators may attach notes to the material for the uploader.

The process of review and approval should take no more than 48 hours.   

Curation approval does not mean the content material is accurate, refereed or endorsed by INET ED, or INET.  Responsibility for content rests entirely with the author and the author alone.  

Usage and copyright

INET ED is a platform for the sharing and use of teaching materials.

As explained in the Terms of Service, copyright on material on the INET ED website belongs to and remains with its authors.  Authors do not surrender copyright to the materials they contribute and upload to INET ED platform,  By uploading material, contributors are licensing that material to the INET ED platform for display and making those materials available for other users of INET ED to use for educational purposes.

If you are a teacher, you may download, distribute, display, copy and use the content for educational purposes (classroom, instructional or teaching purposes).   But you must maintain all copyright notices, credit and attributions and other notices in the content. You may not make commercial use of the content.

Do not upload content whose copyright belongs to another party.  Material that violates copyright will be removed.  If you see material which violates copyright, please let us know immediately.  You can contact ineted@ineteconomics.org or copyright@ineteconomics.org. 

Neither INET ED nor INET are liable for any damages arising from use of the INET ED platform.  Please read our "Terms of Service" for more details.
