The following update regarding their new OU photography course was recently published by the RPS.
The Royal Photographic Society and The Open University have launched a unique online digital photography course that will bring together The RPS’s 160-year experience in photography and the Open University’s recognised expertise in delivering education online.
Digital Photography: Creating and Sharing Better Images is a 10-week course designed to help people new to digital photography and those looking to improve existing skills – and to see the world in a new way. It will develop participants’ technical and visual skills through weekly practical assignments. Students will join a vibrant online community of their peers, to share, comment and learn from each other’s work, and they will receive feedback from expert photographers on their final assessment.
The course has been designed to give those completing it the skills needed to tackle The Royal Photographic Society’s Licentiate (LRPS) distinction in photography.
The 10-week course will cost £200 with participants working through The Open University’s award-winning online platform. There will be two presentations each year, with the first in June and October 2015. Students who successfully complete the course will be entitled to an RPS Certificate in Photography. It does not provide credit towards OU qualification
