LecturePoint: U.S. History
Looking for another "take" on that lecture about the American Revolution? Still unclear about the "Cold War"? LecturePoint: U.S. History can help! In each of 32 animated audio lectures that follow the traditional U.S. History course, an experienced instructor describes the significant people, events, and movements of American history. Maps, photos, and artwork punctuate each lesson. This is not a replacement for lectures or reading, but a useful review tool to help you succeed in your class. Whether your class is in-person or online, you'll find it easy to review lessons whenever you need them.
