Get a Free Subscription to the Beta Version of The Great Courses Plus (Space Limited)

We’ve told you about the Great Cours­es Plus (now called Won­dri­um) before–a new video sub­scrip­tion ser­vice that lets you watch free cours­es (about 8,000 lec­tures in total) across a wide range of sub­jects, all taught by some of the best lec­tur­ers in the coun­try. The top­ics cov­er every­thing from His­to­ry, Phi­los­o­phy, Lit­er­a­ture, and Eco­nom­ics, to Math, Sci­ence, Pro­fes­sion­al Devel­op­ment, Cook­ing, and Pho­tog­ra­phy. And you can binge-watch entire col­lege cours­es in a mat­ter of days by watch­ing videos on your TV, tablet, lap­top and smart phone, with the help of apps designed for Apple, Google Play, Kin­dle Fire, and Roku.

Inter­est­ed in try­ing out this ser­vice? Right now, the Great Cours­es Plus/Won­dri­um is offer­ing a spe­cial deal for Open Cul­ture read­ers. If you click here, and sign up for a free tri­al, you can use this ser­vice for 30 days … for free. And then, if you would like, you can con­tin­ue to sub­scribe and pay their nor­mal prices. If you have time on your hands, this is a great way to keep your mind engaged and stream what PC Mag­a­zine has called “an excel­lent library of col­lege-lev­el lec­tures.”

Note: The Great Cours­es is a part­ner with Open Cul­ture. So if you sign up for a free tri­al, it ben­e­fits not just you and Great Cours­es Plus. It ben­e­fits Open Cul­ture too. So con­sid­er it win-win-win.

    thanks! I just sub­scribed to it. Between that and skill­share, I have a pseu­do-scholas­tic course load.

    thank you very much!

  • Catia says:

    Bril­liant! I’m a fan of their cours­es and this is an amaz­ing offer :)

  • P. P. Ebert says:

    Thank-you so very much, you have no idea how much this will help me.

  • Ivik says:

    This is absolute­ly fab­u­lous! Thank you, Open Cul­ture, for this pos­si­bil­i­ty. I’ve been a long-time fan of yours and this is even more than I expect­ed to get :) Thanks again

    Just be aware that it’s for Android but seem­ing­ly not for Apple yet! Which I hope means it won’t run down my free time for before they release the Apple App. I’ll be most unhap­py if I signed up only to have zero way to access it until after the time expires.

    I would love to take your pho­tog­ra­phy course. I saw your adver­tise­ment on BBC World Ser­vice and came to my com­put­er right away.

    I have a Nikon D200 AND two lens­es… 18–135mm and an 80–400mm nikkor. The train­ing would sort out my rough edges!! I look for­ward to hear­ing from you. A list of addi­tion­al equip­ment would be most wel­come.

    Thank you,
