Back then,The Great Courses started off with just a few video tapes and a brilliant inspiration. The founder of The Great Courses, Tom Rollins was a law student who studied at The Harvard University. He was to face an important exam on the U.S. Federal Rules of Evidence. He wasn’t prepared even a bit for the exam. Tom knew that his success depending on understanding the material in the subject and he therefore studied from the video tapes of the 10 lectures that he acquired from a noted authority of the subject, Professor Irving Younger. It was that very night that changed everything and led to the birth of the The Great Courses. The concept of the Tom was simple i.e. to find that top 1% college professors in the world only based on their phenomenal ability to teach and then use the feedback of the customers to create the courses in the format that was uniquely designed for the lifelong learner.
