Simulators

Learning economic concepts can be simplified by simulators. Simulators are based on a model or graph as seen in a traditional textbook but add more functionality and interactivity to bring it to life and create a deep learning experience.

Data

Readily available data is critical to connect the theory in economics with real-life trends and events. Our economic dashboard recollects key economic indicators from different countries statistical agencies and updates it as soon as new information is released. We add interaction to data graphs to allow for better understanding and engagement.

Immersive Platform

Our platform allows an immersive experience where it is easy to interact with the data, simulators, and course content. This allows to seamlessly discover, learn and connect economic theory to real events that happen on a day to day, domestic and international level with the power of one click.
