Welcome to the Learning Center!

Check out all the documents, audio and video files on the site.
Some items are free, and some cost credits. You can add credits to your account anytime.

All files are DRM free. You can download them as many times as you want to whatever computers you have. While playing a pirate is fun, being a pirate is not cool. I made sure to keep the prices really low (mp3s are $1 and videos (about 20 to 30 minutes) are $5.
