Download a Free Course from “The Great Courses” Through’s Free Trial Program


Hardly a day goes by where I’m not doing one of two things — listening to an audio book from, or listening to a lecture from The Great Courses (formerly known as The Teaching Company). So, I was naturally pleased when the two companies announced a partnership yesterday. From now on, Audible subscribers can download courses/lectures from The Great Courses, and they’re pretty cheap. For example, members of Audible’s Gold plan can purchase a polished 36-hour course, such as How to Listen to and Understand Great Music, for roughly $15. Not bad, especially considering that it would cost exponentially more to buy it directly through the Great Courses’ web site. If you’ve never tried out Audible or The Great Courses, then you may want to sign up for Audible’s 30-Day Free Trial. It will let you download any one course for free. NB: Audible is an subsidiary, and we’re a member of their affiliate program.

If none of the above sounds any good, well, you could always lose yourself in our collections of 900 Free Audio Books and 1700 Free Online Courses from Top Universities.
