This week is Open Education Week 2014. It is a celebration of the global Open Education Movement with both online and locally hosted events around the world. Also geospatial science education is covered through the ELOGeo initiative.
ELOGeo was started with the aim to make geospatial science education available to everyone globally who wish to learn this. Till recently, geospatial science education was beyond the reach of financially poor students of our planet because of the high cost of the proprietary GI vendor softwares and non availability of good quality free education materials. We hope we can make a small step in helping widen geospatial education opportunities to all. We are extremely pleased that within two years since the launch of ELOGeo from very humble beginnings, it has now become the defacto Open Access Educational Platform for Geospatial thanks to the strong support of geospatial community worldwide. ELOGeo is now used from Stanford University to universities in Africa.
A big thanks to all contributors, users and funders of ELOGeo!
