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.
