MOOCs, Maps, and the Geospatial Revolution – Sharing the digital classroom with 48,000 students

Tuesday, March 18th 2014, 2:00pm – 3:00pm


Last year saw the emergence of the first Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) focused on geospatial topics. Developed at Penn State, Maps and the Geospatial Revolution enrolled over 48,000 students from 150+ countries.  In addition to offering a new (free) way to access skills and knowledge, MOOCs also change how students engage with educators and course materials.

In this webinar you will learn

  • how MOOCs differ from other forms of education
  • what MOOCs can offer geospatial professionals
  • how MOOCs challenge the traditional role of the geospatial educator
