Harvard’s Photography Course is Now Available for FREE Online

If your resolution for 2017 is to take better photographs than your current blurry, badly composed effort, you’ll want to check out this free MOOC from Harvard University.

The school where Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates cut their teeth has uploaded the entirety of its photography course to ALISON – one of the many repositories of online learning courses.

The course consists of twelve modules that cover the fundamentals of photography – from software tools to composition and light. There’s also a thirteenth module which serves as an assessment of all you know. If you pass this with a score of 80 percent or higher, and you can get yourself a diploma to print and hang on your wall.

There is a caveat though:

The course itself is from 2009, and while the fundamentals are still true, some of the lessons on software tools aren’t exactly current.

Harvard, obviously, isn’t the only prestigious university that’s put its material on the Internet; UCLA, Yale, Princeton have all launched their own efforts. But most of these tend to be geared towards computer science or academics.

Therefore, it’s nice to see one with more creative pursuits in mind 🙂
