Personalised Syllabus

We track serious content that you are unlikely to find elsewhere: academic articles, books, videos, podcasts, reports, and select journalism. Our systems categorises all of this into “courses”. From these building blocks we’ve made it easy for you to create a weekly syllabus tailored to you.

What’s not to like about the ability to build your own reading list – a syllabus, yes! – by choosing five to ten courses from our mix below?
