(Note to Mods:  If this needs to go on a different board, feel free.)

If I read it correctly, the course is free unless you want a certificate.

https://www.coursera.org/course/vicphoto

Excerpted from the course description:

"Explore the Victorian craze for photography, examine its history, from the earliest images in 1839 and how it has influenced the way we capture and share images today as photography moved from being a niche concern of the few, to one of the most important cultural forms of the modern world.

This is a course aimed at introducing you to the history of photography in the 19th century. It combines theory with practice, giving you the option to respond to some of the iconic images we will explore, and to create and share your own images.

It will provide an introduction to the processes, people and images associated with early photography, starting in 1839 when Louis Daguerre announced the daguerreotype image in France, and WHF Talbot unveiled the calotype process in England. You will have the chance to learn about the personalities, processes and social contexts of the rise of photography..."
