Learning Heaven💕💕💕💕💕

I've admired The Great Courses for MANY years. I brought a few here and there but I really couldn't afford the many lectures I was interested in. The first memberships were not that affordable, either. A few weeks ago, I filled out a survey about membership and didn't think much of it. Suddenly I received an email with a yearly membership I thought was fair. Now, I'm looking at all I desired. I don't have to listen to all of the lectures of a specific course at one time...I'm zigzagging all over the place and loving it!

So, why no 5? A few details need to be worked out. You should be able to pick up where you left off...AND do this from one device to another. Download for offline viewing is another. Some of the courses can use more diagrams rather than watching this professor stand and speak the entire time (break that up? Please...). But it doesn't stop me from enjoying my lectures during the work commute, work and break. I love this subscription.

Exceeded even my high expectations

Although I am someone who has enjoyed the great courses and has a stack of "to watch" (guilty cringe), signing up for the GreatCoursesPlus has definitely been a good decision for me. I have already enjoyed the two courses that I have watched (the Black Plague, and living history) and utilized some of its features, going back and rewatching a few I didn't understand. I am excited as I scroll through topics I normally don't focus on, by the idea that I could watch one or two lectures to see if they interest me after all. While watching the Black Plague I found it so interesting it became the running joke at work! In short it is interesting, informative, pleasurable, and I feel it is just how I like to relax in my off time. Thank you to the professors for their dedication to their craft and the great courses for realizing that there are those of us who do enjoy learning just for the sake of learning.

Great sevice and good app

I am delighted that the Teaching Company is making so many of its fine courses available for streaming at the subscription cost of $20 a month.

I use the iPad app. With respect to the app, which plays the videos well, I would like to see adjustable rewind and fast-forward controls, as well as the ability to change the default speed at which the app is played. Often a slower-speaking lecturer can be speeded up a bit with no loss of intelligibility, especially if I have listened to the lecture before. The app does have a speed-doubling button that cannot be fine-tuned so is not very useful. (When one is playing the videos at the GCPlus web site on the Chrome browser, such controls can be supplied by a Chrome addon.) I also agree that it would be great for the sound to continue playing when the screen is not visible or the iPad is in lock mode.
