Audible today announced a new partnership with The Great Courses , the nation’s leading educational media publisher for lifelong learning and personal enrichment. Audible.com will now offer more than 9,000 fascinating Great Courses lectures—nearly 5,000 hours of engaging content across a wide spectrum of academic, professional, and popular interest areas, including literature, history, wellness, music, science, philosophy, theology, mathematics, economics, and business, all taught by the world’s most acclaimed professors and experts.

The arrangement makes all of the courses offered at Audible.com available to its members at an historic value; in addition, anyone else can try any of The Great Courses for free at www.freeaudibletrial.com.

“Audible customers are avid readers whose passion for lifelong learning is demonstrated again and again by the quantity and breadth of content they consume through our service,” said Audible EVP and publisher Beth Anderson. “We are thrilled to be able to offer our customers access to these edifying and thought-provoking courses, powerfully delivered by the world’s greatest teachers and subject matter experts. Our customers use Audible because they want to be better informed and thoughtfully entertained, and The Great Courses will deliver in spades.”

Courses will be made available at Audible beginning today. Among the over 340 ‘Great Courses’ which will be available for download to Audible customers are:

  • Espionage and Covert Operations: A Global History (Professor Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius)
  • The Science of Natural Healing (Professor Mimi Guarneri)
  • Art of Critical Decision Making (Professor Michael A. Roberto)

The Great Courses is the premier brand in lifelong learning and has a deep library of inspiring educational adventures that millions worldwide have enjoyed to expand their horizons, indulge their intellectual passions and enrich their lives,” said Paul Suijk, President of The Great Courses. “We’re very excited to be partnering to bring these powerful learning experiences to Audible’s intellectually curious and rapidly growing audience.”

Audible, the world’s largest seller of digital spoken-word content, invented and commercialized the first digital audio player in 1997, and has since been at the forefront of the explosively growing audiobook download segment. In 2012, Audible members downloaded an average of 18 books over the course of a year.
