The following is a description from MASSOLIT Classics about their offerings:
Founded by Oxford Classicist Chris Tudor back in 2013, MASSOLIT is a website that contains a huge collection of short video lectures (8-10 minutes each on average) in Classics and Ancient History aimed at high-school teachers and their students.
Chris has filmed and edited all these videos himself, working with leading Classicists from around the world, including: Barbara Graziosi (Princeton), Simon Goldhill (Cambridge), Edith Hall (KCL), Paul Cartledge (Cambridge), Robin Osborne (Cambridge), Emily Hauser (Harvard), Catharine Edwards (Birkbeck), Angie Hobbs (Sheffield), and many others.
The site currently covers more than 100 topics. This includes lectures on Homer, Sappho, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Herodotus, Thucydides, Aristophanes, Plato, Menander, Plautus, Terence, Catullus, Cicero, Virgil, Ovid, Horace, Tacitus and Pliny. Our YouTube channel features some of our most popular lectures: http://bit.ly/YouTube-MASSOLITCLASSICS
Short, sharp and intellectually rigorous, these lectures are perfect for use in the classroom, as a homework exercise, or for teachers wanting to expand their own subject knowledge/keep up to date with the latest research in the field.More than 700 schools around the world already make use of MASSOLIT, and currently two-week, no obligation free trials are offered here.
