I am teaching an undergraduate photography class. What are the most amazing, resource intensive websites that the students should be exposed to?

It can be material that is only peripherally related to photography, if it is crucial to an contemporary understanding of the medium. These students will need as much exposure to the canon of art history, and its relationship to contemporary and 'antique' photographic practice as possible.
(Surprisingly, 18-23 year-olds are not as deft at utilizing internet resources as one would expect! While I was prepared for them to run circles around my google-fu, they seem bored with the web in general.)
What sites should a group of young, fine-arts majors be aware of? I want them (to at least begin) to grok the powerful implications of this strange, modern-period invention that changed everything.
