What Is The Great Courses Signature Collection?


What is The Great Courses Signature Collection? Would you like access to over 200 video courses taught by some of the best professors in the USA? The Great Courses Signature Collection Channel on Amazon Prime Video will provide you with just that! At LearnOutLoud.com we've been fans of The Great Courses for two decades now. In fact we used to listen to their courses on cassette tapes in our car back when they were called The Teaching Company! They've grown greatly since then, adding hundreds of high quality audio & video courses to their catalog taught by the best university professors in the country. If you want to learn a little more about The Great Courses you can check out our description on our publisher page here: The Great Courses on LearnOutLoud.com.

The Great Courses can be accessed in a variety of ways. You can purchase them a la carte from their website TheGreatCourses.com or if you want to get courses on audio you can purchase over 500 of them with The Great Courses on Audible.com. They also have a subscription service called The Great Courses Plus. This is their $20/month service that now gives you full access to over 500 of their courses on audio & video (kind of like Netflix for the lifelong learner). The Great Courses Plus is a great service that we've been subscribed to for years, and it has excellent apps for your phone and your streaming devices so you can learn wherever you are on both audio & video.

But if that $20/month price tag is a little steep, you might want to try out The Great Courses Signature Collection on Amazon Prime Video. In order to subscribe to The Great Courses Signature Collection Channel you'll need to be an Amazon Prime Member. If you are a member, you can subscribe to The Great Courses Signature Collection Channel for only $7.99/month (and they give you a 7-day free trial to check it out). What you'll get from The Great Courses Signature Collection is a video library over 200 of the latest courses from The Great Courses. From the looks of it, they've selected newer courses that will play well on video for this library of over 200 courses that they offer. You can browse all of their courses in The Great Courses Signature Collection here:

And we went through all the courses they offer and have listed them below by category. These are the courses they are offering as of June 2020 so this list of offerings may change over time. There has never been a better time to learn on video, and if you're an Amazon Prime Video subscriber, then $7.99/month is a pretty great price to get access to over 200 of The Great Courses.
