Thomas M Rollins started a flourishing and booming education venture in the USA and this is how came into the picture the Great Courses Story – Thomas M Rollins Teaching. This venture was a boon to the education field and started with just a few video tapes, which were educational in its own sense. These videotapes were highly encouraging and giving inspiration to all those who listened to it and followed the advice carefully. In fact, it was one of the biggest educational ventures in the USA and voted as the best and top most academic developments in the USA, thus spreading its wings gradually and becoming a name in itself.
Further development of the educational venture
This educational venture became a history and attracted as many students as possible. It was a great concept in itself which was started by a law student named Thomas M Rollins studying at the Harvard University. He was not ready to give an important and significant examination on the subject of Federal Rules of Evidence in the USA. It was very much essential for him to pass the examination and have the proper and complete knowledge about the subject, which seemed very boring to him and thus studying the same was not easy at all. To make the subject interesting and easy to read, he laid his hands on videotapes of a renowned and eminent lecturer by the name of Professor Irving Younger. These videotapes were 10 in number and helped him a lot to make it through the examination and score good marks. After having these videotapes, he made it a point to watch them late in the night on the television repeatedly till he got the concepts in his mind. There was a drastic change waiting to enter his life and the change came in the form of Thomas M Rollins Teaching. He created modules in his name for the students like him to refer, in the form of videotapes and thus made the boring subjects interesting to read and grasp the concept at the very first instance itself, without any difficulty.
First Video Tape brought the change in his life
After watching the very first video he realized that the subjects are not at all boring but very interesting to read. He got inclined towards them and thus came into being a new way of learning things which were a great experience for one and all and opened many doors for the people like him. No one has ever experienced such changes with regards to the learning and studying of any of the subjects which were boring initially but became quite interesting overnight. These lectures in the videotapes were motivating, full of information and cover all the important aspects a student must know. Thus these lectures were within the easy reach of the students concerned and thus made learning an interesting thing rather than the most hated and under looked activity of the time.
In fact, these videotapes made him realize that learning is not a boring or tedious activity but a great experience to feel the same in the company of the right teacher making the student read the right kind of books.
