Math courses are phenomenal!

I cannot tell you how wonderful the math courses with Dr. Sellers are. My oldest (14) has always struggled with math, and as a homeschooler, I’ve tried different techniques and curriculums to help him. This is the first time I can tell that a real lightbulb has come on and he’s truly getting it. And I’m finally understanding things that I struggled with in school, too! The way he teaches is just fantastic. I love that he talks in a normal conversational tone, not patronizing or as if he’s teaching children. And he explains everything THOROUGHLY and clearly. He gives you the techniques in detail step by step and gives 2 or 3 examples. Then he gives you a problem to figure out. He goes over that problem in detail just like the others, so that if you do make a mistake, you can see where you went wrong. But so far, neither my son nor I (because I started doing it with him because it’s so great) have made mistakes because by that time we are clear on how to do it. Except one time when I made a dumb counting error lol. Thank you so much, Dr. Sellers and Wondrium. You are turning a teenager and middle aged adult who have both always hated and struggled with math, into interested math scholars!

Powerful Tool to Eradicate Ignorance!

The GCP is a powerful and effective tool that has provided my entire family members ranging from ages 6-80 with wealth of information from multiple fascinating lectures.
I have enjoyed many courses from History to Astrophysics to cooking and more. The lectures are engaging and easy to follow (English is my second language).
I appreciate the fact that I can log in from any device (10 in my account) and from anywhere in the wold! I can execute multiple daily tasks while learning. Getting stuck in traffic is no longer a waste of my life as long as I can listen to any of The Great Courses Plus lectures.
The only thing I wish can be improve, is the accessibility of the lessons in each Course. It takes too many steps of I want to start from the beginning or play a previously studied lesson. In any case, the fact that one can have access to such incredible amount of knowledge at his/her fingertips is powerful!

Far fewer courses than before? App VERY buggy

I can’t help but think there are far fewer courses in the catalog than when I last subscribed about a year ago, before the branding change. Still $20/mo but *really* seems feels like a limited and sparse array of content than before. There were a lot more history courses last time. What gives? Where’s the rest? Why the branding change? Why charging same amount if you’re reducing the library?

The app has many amateurish bugs. Off-by-one index errors, one course now consistently crashes app iff I tap on it on the Home screen but not if located otherwise, weird random stop/pause. The biggest annoyance is when not on wifi (and have downloaded some chapters, if I pause playback, I have to unlock phone, go to app and it behaves like it’s launching anew then tells me it’s not on network (yeah, duh) then I have to tap downloads then try to remember what chapter I’d been listening to then hope it remembers where I left off. More fun is when off-by-one index error has cropped up (not consistent!) then you get to figure that out. So for heaven’s s sake do not pause?!? Don’t worry it will keep playing in background for every single notification announcement that comes in, so you get to try to differentiate between the two voices. Come on those are amateur bugs.
