We have evaluated the results of Dynare’s user survey. One thing that came up frequently was a wish for more tutorials and examples on all the features Dynare offers. Albeit the manual covers most of it, it is a reference but not a user guide. **Note that there is an outdated user guide which we do not support anymore, and which has also several errors in it.**

So we decided that a milestone of Dynare 4.7 should be better documentation and a new user guide. I am quite thankful that Johannes Pfeifer took the lead here; however, I will also post and update my teaching materials as written tutorials as well as videos online. I hope this is useful.

You can find everything on a dedicated subpage: Dynare and on my YouTube Channel.

### Online Courses and Materials

You might find the following courses useful as they heavily make use of Dynare:

Please let me know of other courses that helped you on your journey with Dynare, so I can update the list.

### Finished videos

The following videos are already online (newest are on top):

- k-order perturbation for DSGE: tensor vs matrix, Einstein summation, Faà Di Bruno, tensor unfolding
- What does it mean to numerically compute the steady-state in Dynare vs MATLAB
- Understanding Dynare’s Preprocessor OR How to manually preprocess a DSGE model (with MATLAB)
- Algebra of New Keynesian Models with Calvo price rigidities
- Quick Tour Dynare (focus on solution methods and simulations)

There are also several videos on how to install Dynare with MATLAB or Octave on Windows, macOS and Linux.

### Plan for future videos

If you want a tutorial on a specific topic, please let me know via email or in this thread.

### Help is much appreciated

Of course, the video most likely will contain errors, so I’d appreciate if you let me know, so I can either correct these in the description of the videos or, if it is a very severe one, remake the video. Contributions of videos or scripts are very much appreciated!
