I got advertisement mail on this a couple of days ago. I thought it was brilliant with so many people in covid lockdown.

@Bronzino , (et al)

My Genius (now departed) Old Man was a paid pre-release reviewer of many of their Courses. When OM passed, I inherited more than Two Hundred of those courses.

They are, each and every one I have seen, BRILLIANT!

From My Collegiate Experience, There are a Few Rare ("Rock Star!) Professors on each Campus that make learning difficult subjects much easier, because they can impart the Joys of understanding.

Great Courses takes surveys from Graduating Students and then finds those Genius Professors, and record the Courses. Learn from the Best!

The Learning Experience is Dramatically Different when it is Self Directed (not following the demands of a Curriculum headed towards some Degree)!

I Strongly Encourage any of You who are Interested in the Least, to try One of the FREE units offered. You may very well become "Hooked"!

How Well-Informed, How Knowledgeable could You be, with The Very Best Professors teaching their very best Courses/Interests to You, who can stop the lecture, back up, review, and fully understand? These Courses are taught by the equivalents of Richard Feynman in their respective fields!

INFINITELY BETTER than TV Wasteland! God gives Each of Us only so much (we don't know HOW Much) conscious Time on this Plane of Existence - "A Brain is a TERRIBLE thing to waste!"

I buy courses off of Udemy all the time. Alot of them go for over $100 to $200 but they always offer coupon codes and you can get most of the courses for $10.99 or $11.99. Never pay full price. If you never heard of Udemy, check it out.

Haven't heard of Udemy, @brew - that is a fantastic discount! I wonder if those are single or selected lectures? Many of the units have Fifteen or more Lectures of Hour-long segments.
some of the classes I've bought are over 40 hours. They have all the information about each course in the desciption and they usually give a couple of free lectures. I would listen to a free lecture before buying a course. There are alot of people with bad english who teach courses.
