Want to study photography? Harvard University is offering a *free* class

We know what you're thinking: “Harvard University? One of the top ranked colleges in the world? Am I reading that right...?" The answer is yes.

You can now take a 12-module online class on photography at Harvard University without paying a cent.

The class takes about 10 to 15 hours to complete, but this is a perfect course for those of you that have always wanted to be an expert photographer but don’t know where to start. Everything from the basics to aperture to digital retouching will be covered in the 12 modules. The final thirteenth module is an assessment of everything you've learned (just like a final exam!), and afterwards you can say you graduated from a Harvard course—just *think* about how good that will look on your resume when you're applying for summer jobs and internships!

The whole course is taken through a learning service ALISON, which offers free online courses from a variety of sources in everything from psychology to, of course, photography.

Lots of universities offer online courses for free for the public to enroll in, but isn’t it nice to see a creative class taking the mantle this time, and at such a prestigious institution, no less?
