LearnOutLoud.com, an online portal for audio and video learning material, has launched what it calls the internet’s largest directory of free educational audio and video content. This directory contains more than 500 free titles, including audio books, historical speeches, and university lectures. In addition to extensive links to free audio and video content–including collections of dozens of video lectures from MIT–LarnOutLoud.com says it has produced dozens of its own free audio titles for the directory. Examples of free audio books that can be downloaded from the site include Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Self Reliance and James Allen’s As a Man Thinketh. LearnOutLoud.com’s catalog offers an extensive collection of nonfiction and classic fiction titles organized into categories such as business, language learning, and self-help. Audio guides to foreign-language courses and other subjects also are available.
