The short course concept was pioneered at America’s great public universities as a way to bring persons in the vocations (such as agriculture and such) back to campus to learn about new techniques in such fields as butter production and ice-cream manufacturing. These days, the short course concept has been extended to all types of pastimes and professions, including photography. This very thorough website, created by Dennis Curtin, offers a number of tutorials and informational essays on all aspects of digital photography, camera operation, and editing digital photos. In the site's seventeen sections, visitors can learn about how to choose a digital camera, how to display and share digital photos, and how to best use one's digital camera for a variety of purposes. Additionally, visitors can sign up to receive an occasional newsletter on digital photography. Certainly this site will be of interest to those with both a casual interest in digital photography, and perhaps those students who may need to utilize such equipment as part of their vocational training.
