Open2Learn - Photography Course Videos.

FYI, Open2Learn is a subsidiary of Open Universities Australia. It has a range of short free courses on a diverse range of subjects. See

Photography is one of them, and I noticed that the videos (mostly about 5 minutes long) are hosted on Youtube, so whilst you may want to do the free course (there are additional simulations and quiz's), if you would prefer to just want to view the videos, you can find them here:
