Bulk downloading all the MP3s and PDFs for a level
Was just wondering if theres a way to download all the MP3s and PDFs for a level, since I prefer to use the Goodreader app to study from.
Thanks for the help!

I would say the quickest way would be to use your self- study RSS feed and add this to iTunes. You can then quickly download those lessons and PDF's on to your computer. Then it will be easy to add to good reader from there.
For help adding your RSS feed, check out our FAQ.
Hi there Gwilym I added the self-study RSS feed to my Itunes but I only see the one new qingwen episode released today and some episodes from 2008 and 2005. Is this unusual or not working as intended?
I tested your self study feed on my computer. It reflects what you see on your dashboard which is all the latest lessons that you are subscribed to, as well as some bookmarked lessons that you have personally marked. (The bookmarked lessons have a green icon next to them.) If you add the RSS feed to iTunes, you will see two options, "Unplayed" and "Feed". If you click on feed you will see all the lessons that are in your self study. Since you are a relatively new subscriber, the self study feed only includes the newest lessons since you became a subscriber. For example, if you started with ChinesePod today, you would only see a the new episodes here. To download these files to your computer quickly, just click on the cloud icons next to the podcasts. On my mac they get saved to a iTunes folder directly. (Music>iTunes?iTunes Media>Podcasts>ChinesePod).
If you want to download all the lessons from a particular course, add the course RSS feed to itunes, click on all the cloud icons then navigate to the iTunes folder to get access to all the individual mp3 files. At the moment we don't have a single way to bulk download all lessons from a particular level since our service is a subscription model.
Click the cloud icon and they will download on to your computer. They will be found in the iTunes folder on your computer, The quickest way would be to do a quick file search of a podcast name to see where your computer saves it, but for me it is Music>iTunes>iTunes Media>Podcasts
