When it comes to the list of digital imaging pioneers, Marc Levoy is one of those names that belongs right near the top. His work has led to many of the technical advances that we see in use today with computer generated imagery. So, it's no wonder that he jumped into digital photography. From 2009 until 2014, Levoy taught digital photography at Stanford.
In 2016, he revised the course and taught it again at Google in Spring. Now, the entire revised course is available online completely free. The course assumes no prior knowledge of photography whatsoever. It covers pretty much everything you'd ever want to know about photography. Covering a multitude of technical aspects from the basics to extremely in-depth.
There's hours and hours of video covering Levoy's lectures to Google over a 4 month period. Several web based apps are there, too, to help understand some of the trickier technical concepts of photography. He also provides several assignments to help you challenge yourself and put what you've learned to good use.

With a quick browse it seems very comprehensive and full of some technical details that I am sorely lacking in. The more I browse around the more I like it. Very interesting on a general history of photography and quite a bit of depth on the technical side. A look at the course assignments show they greatly enhance any camera users skill and knowledge. Maybe i can get motivated to go through this whole thing step by step and really catch up on some of the skills I'm lacking.
