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.
