University-Level Class On Digital Photography For Free

Want to take a university-level class on digital photography for free?

Former Stanford professor and current Google engineer Marc Levoy has a site containing his complete course materials for a class that he has taught 5 times at Stanford and once at Google.

Studying photography will allow you to expand your skills as you immerse yourself in the subject whilst surrounded by peers with the same passion for imagery. You will gain confidence as a photographer, learn about all aspects of the medium and its pioneers all while building up a support network of like-minded people.

"The course consists of 18 lectures. The topics, with dates, are given in the course schedule. The lectures were delivered live on Google's Mountain View campus, broadcast live to Google offices around the world, and recorded for later playback. The videos linked into these web pages are from those recordings, edited slightly to remove discussion of Google internal projects. Keynote slides from these lectures were converted to PDF files and linked into the schedule after each lecture."

To give you a taste of what a lecture is like, here’s lecture "Autofocus (AF), Exposure metering (AE)":
