Ever stop to think about how important location is when using your smart phone?
Elmhurst’s Skills for the Digital Earth MOOC (massive open online course) explores why “where?” is vitally important to a myriad of disciplines in our digital world. Participants in the MOOC will learn what location technologies are used for, as well as fundamental geospatial concepts, skills and applications.
Taught through video lectures, interaction opportunities and discussion forums, participants will complete exercises and run through real-world examples using online spatial software that works on any device with a Web browser.
The MOOC is designed for those with no prior experience with geographic information systems (GIS) software all the way to advanced users.
