Update: Esri Announces MOOC: Going Places with Spatial Analysis (Not an Intro!)

from www.directionsmag.com

An article in the latest ArcNews (Summer 2014, not online as I post) has further details:

  • The course will be run for the first time in September, with repeated offerings based on demand.
  • Esri will use the Udemy platform to deliver the course. Udemy allows individuals to offer an online course for free or fee. There are already a few GIS courses including one apparently from Esri.
  • The course is positioned as fulfilling a request of students of Penn States “Maps and the Geospatial Revolution” MOOC. They wanted an advanced course.
  • The course is expected to be the first in a series of MOOCs from Esri.

Going Places with Spatial Analysis is a new online course, a MOOC, from Esri. There’s a video. Worth noting:

It’s not an intro course:

This Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) is for people who know something about data analysis and want to learn about the special capabilities of spatial data analysis. … Previous experience with GIS software is helpful, but not necessary for tech-savvy problem solvers.

Why should you take the course?

Spatial analysis focuses on location to gain a deeper understanding of data. Spatial analysis skills are in high demand by organizations around the world. You’ll get free access to the full analytical capabilities of ArcGIS Online, Esri’s cloud-based GIS platform.

No start date announced:
