Effective student learning frequently requires activities in which students can practice skills and theories developed in lecture. Creating such activities for practical subjects such as economics becomes difficult when the particular areas of economic activity to be studied are remote from a typical student’s personal experiences. Previous research show that online resources such as Aplia or MyEconLab can improve student performance at the introductory level. However, these resources are costly, and little research exists demonstrating their effectiveness for upper-level economics electives. This proposal rectifies these shortcomings by giving students access to these resources in 2 elective, international economic courses (International Trade and International Finance).
