EUMETSAT will run its first MOOC

24 Oct – 25 Nov 2016 / Online

This autumn, EUMETSAT will run its first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on the theme of monitoring the oceans from space.

The MOOC is aimed at a general audience and will give an introduction to the benefits and potential uses of satellite-based ocean observations collected in the framework of the EU Copernicus Programme. It will explain how to access and use marine Earth observation data and information from Copernicus/EUMETSAT missions, and also the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS).

The course will be run entirely online, over five weeks, with three hours of study a week involving an interactive mix of videos, written information and exercises. It will be hosted on the FutureLearn platform.
