  • Incredible content, terrible app

    By PeytonSmithIV
    The content available through the great courses is phenomenal. However this app is so terrible that it has nearly made me cancel my membership numerous times out of frustration. And it isn’t simply buggy, it’s also missing very basic features. Needs a complete redesign.
  • Buggy / laggy / freezing video

    By gary thobaben
    I had never had problems w the app over the past few years. It’s not stellar but it’s gotten the job done. The past 4-6 weeks however I can’t get 20 seconds through a lecture without buffering. It’s my only app which experiences this issue, even on ludicrous speed WiFi. Dunno what’s up w your servers, GCP, but please fix them!
  • App needs work

    By Hobbes8585
    Update: I’ve been using daily for a few days. It’s even worse than I thought. I decided to sign up for the free trial since I usually spend my audible credits on great courses. But the app needs work. So I probably cancel until it gets worked on. For instance- Why can I only download video? I only listen on my long car rides and video takes a ton of space If I try to look at other episodes in a course I’m listening to it just keeps playing the current video. I have to go into the search bar and find the main courses. So f—ing laggy. I really have to wait 6 seconds before selecting and video and it playing?! Takes forever after one course ends and for the next one to start.
  • Terrific resource

    By LilLotte1050
    The Great Courses app lets me have my courses with me everywhere - on the elliptical machine, in the car, or just sitting in a comfortable chair relaxing. I’ve always watched or listened to GCourses but the app greatly increases their accessibility.
  • Huge savings, portable lectures

    By Craycray14
    I'm on the $45/3 months plan, so the price is great. You don't get every course, but you get many courses. I'm using the Great Courses Plus to finish high school as homeschooler without having to play lectures in the hot sun room and without having to ask me parents to purchase course after course on my behalf. If you take advantage of it consistently, it can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars. It's cheap and easy to buy the corresponding guidebooks on Amazon.
  • Excellent!

    If you love learning, you will love Great Courses Plus! I homeschool my kids, and these courses make great supplements to their learning. I am also enjoying watching courses that interest me too.
  • My treadmill buddy.

    By ribeyremd
    We all get tired of reviewers bragging on their own brilliance; but, to inform my background. I was a 26 year old lumber worker and taxi driver. Went to school. Completed credits enough for degrees in Biochemistry, and Honours Physiology, but finally chose to be listed as a double major in math and chemistry. Went on to Doctor of medicine. Sixty years old now, still practicing medicine, still love learning. Love The Great Courses. Great subjects. Wonderful presenters/teachers. Hard to find time, so I have set up a large screen in front of my treadmill. Exercise my mind and body simultaneously. Love these courses, love this app.
  • I love GreatCourses

    By adonyz
    Worth every penny
  • Please add this.

    By Sky Lilith
    I was searching on this app, and looked up Valcanos why aren’t there any videos about it? I highly recommend adding this
  • Indispensable Tool For “Life Growth” Project

    By iMonkglen
    This is my favorite tool for my life improvement project. 73 years old and a life-long learner, with several degrees and lots of awards, I’m insatiably hungry for new knowledge and moreso for new skills. This is m. I took many more, from to get some context for today’s world, took courses on THE MIND, GREAT CHURCHES, COLOR’S MEANING, ASTROPHYSICS, COOKING, THE SILK ROAD, MINDFULNESS & more. The professors are world class and some are open to direct communication
