DiscoverEcon is the set of on-line textbook supplements published by McGraw-Hill to go along with several of their texts.

The interview begins with a rationale for non-chalk & talk teaching. It discusses the development of DiscoverEcon over its different incarnations, and explains its features.

Interesting for teachers, who might be thinking about adopting this software or something like it, but not very useful for as a content resource for students.
