Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)
ESA’s Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) show how EO technology and data applications work, what the data looks like and how it can have impact in both science and on the ground through real-world case studies.
They are designed to welcome students from all paths of life: from scientists to policy-makers, teachers, or other professional, as well as school or university students or casual learners.
Each course lasts several weeks, and breaks the mould of conventional education by blending data, video, apps and on-line materials. The learning experience can be can be personalised thanks to its social aspect (with online discussions and feedback from educators) and to the use of optional materials.
Learn how Earth Observation is used in a wide range of real-world sustainable development and development assistance activities across the globe.
How can you use remote sensing to measure and monitor the atmosphere?
An introduction to optical Earth observation: monitoring our planet from satellites, using photography, imaging in various wavelengths, lidar and other optical sensing technologies
A series of interviews with leading experts across Earth Observation and related technologies
A series of online learning materials suitable for anybody interested in the potential of remote sensing technologies for applications over land surfaces.
How does EO work, and how can it achieve the essential detail and comprehensive worldwide view that we need for climate monitoring
Five short online lessons suitable for anybody with a basic background on SAR and interested in Canadian SAR applications.
Echoes in Space is suitable for anybody interested in getting an introduction to Radar images or looking to dive into the topic
A series of videos and quizzes suitable for anybody interested in the topic.
Learn about the role of satellite ‘Earth observation’ (EO) technology in monitoring the Earth's Cryosphere and the data it produces
Learn about the use of EO in reaching the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2: Zero Hunger: ‘End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture’
Cutting-edge technology and satellite climate data to help measure and mitigate climate change.
You’ll look at the measurements made possible by Earth Observation (EO) satellites like Cryosat, the technologies and techniques involved, the data generated, and its uses and challenges
