Nikon has been running the Nikon School program in the U.S.A. for the past 30 years and just a few days ago they announced the expansion of this program by offering paid online classes through the introduction of Nikon School Online. The original Nikon School program has taught over 100,000 students in the United States but was always a regional option. By moving to an online platform, Nikon hopes to reach a wider audience and expand their popular program.
Initially there will be three courses that are offered:
- “Hands-On with the SB-5000 Speedlight” taught by Joe McNally.
- “Photographing Children and Pets” taught by Tamara Lackey.
- “Getting Started with Your Nikon DSLR” video class.
The full length courses by Joe McNally and Tamara Lackey will be priced at $50 while the 15 minute DSLR intro course will be just $15. Over time more courses will be added to expand the educational library with content that will cater to both experienced users as well as complete novices.
