As mentioned by the Digital Photography Review website in “MIT photography course materials freely available online“:
Via the institute’s Open Course Ware (OCW) program, selected reference materials, syllabus structure and lesson plan guidance is published and free to download so that motivated individuals can teach themselves.
Currently materials from twelve courses are available to the public, including ‘Photography and Truth’, ‘Documentary Photography and Photojournalism: Still Images of a World in Motion’, ‘Sensing Place: Photography as Inquiry and Introduction to Photography’.
For those of you who do not care about photography courses: there are MIT OCW courses on many other subjects available as well. How about a course on network and computer security by Prof. Ronald Rivest of RSA fame?
