I’m writing to let you know first-hand about an exciting and innovative course the Knight Center is offering: "Introduction to photogrammetry in journalism: capturing your world in 3D"! Our amazing instructor, Ben Kreimer, will teach you the most authentic way to capture the real physical world in 3D and will show you how to add this skill to your digital toolkit.

In this four-week massive open online course, which runs from June 27 to July 24, you’ll learn how photogrammetry allows you to tell stories about the world around you by creating three-dimensional replicas from photographs.
