Stay engaged, gain different perspectives, think critically!

Love the lectures, mostly! The variety, the points of view, the sometimes enthusiasm of the teachers for their material. It inspires me to want to know more! I also love catching up visually on Cspan 3 latter and checking these people, and their students out. Helps me as an primarily auditory learner be a life long learner!

Deindustrialization of America.

This lecture is a complete joke! The “professor” is a total flake; breezing through her superficial economic opinions; then summarizing the topic with half-dozen music clips of rap, hip-hop & DEVO! No wonder we see daily interviews with college kids who are so clueless... they’re being lectured by morons like Loyola University Chicago professor Michelle Nickerson!The thought of paying $60,000++ a year for my daughter to sit through something like this is ridiculous. But Worse is the fact that kids leave a place like this with $200,000+ in college debt! Unable to think for themselves and already cut off from The American Dream because of debt accrued for a worthless “education.”

Did Malcom X

Did he know that Muslims was the wholesaler of Black Slaves to the white Europe’s trade? That slavery has been exciting from ancient times in all races. Of course their was no excuse for slavery in US at anytime. Or long after we finally have gotten rid of in America. Slavery excites still in Muslim countries countries of Africa today. The last African country only outlawed the practice in 1970’s. But it still exists but more hidden in a lot of Muslim countries in Middle East and Africa

Thank You!

I really enjoy the lectures. I always felt like I did not appreciate the extent I f my courses so I make up by reading a lot. This is a great way of reducing that feeling.

Lectures in History

You did not get to enroll in a top 10 university known for its' History Department? Great! You saved thousands and can get it here for FREE. Now you can listen over and over again and really learn something at your pleasure. And the lectures are a pleasure. Five stars.

Good

Generally good. The episode of 19th century drug addiction was a complete waste. Note to anyone recording a lecture - it's audio only! If the lecturer is relying on power point slides and not narrating. We see it.

Thank you

Thanks from a baby boomer who loves this chance to go back to college. How fortunate we were, how fortunate today's young people are, to have the college experience. By the way, I now know that the more the professor infuriates me with his or her point of view, the more I think and learn. May freedom of speech endure.

American peril?

I'm looking for a podcast entitled the American peril. It came out over the summer and was one of my favorites and I'd really like to hear it again.

If a person is able to think for themselves and question the perspective of the speaker it is a great way to get a history course. Great podcast.
