The Museum of Modern Art in New York just launched its first free and massive online course for the general public. Titled “Seeing Through Photographs,” it’s a 6-session class on Coursera that’s designed to help you go beyond simply seeing photos and advance to truly understanding them. “Although taking, sharing, and viewing photographs has become second nature for many of us, our regular engagement with images does not necessarily make us visually literate,” the class description says. “This course aims to address the gap between seeing and truly understanding photographs by introducing a diversity of ideas, approaches, and technologies that inform their making.”
