Yesterday's Washington Post has a nice feature article on Aplia, the educational software firm founded by economist Paul Romer.

I have never used the Aplia product in my courses at Harvard, but I know professors at other schools who have tried it, and they love it. It is available to be used in conjunction with my Principles text.

My other textbook Macroeconomics, which comes out in a new edition on July 15, 2009, will be the first intermediate macro text to have an Aplia product to accompany it. I have been told that the Aplia intermediate macro product will be available for Spring 2010 courses.
