Title VESTA-GIS eLearning Platform
Product Type open and distance learning
Marketing Text It is a Dokeos LMS based platform (GISIG platform) where training providers can upload course and modules for training provision. Moreover, the Training Framework architecture allows the connection with other eLearning platforms (i.e. belonging to VESTA-GIS members or other connected networks)according to the concept of VESTA-GIS federated platforms.
Through the VESTA-GIE eLearning Platform the Consortium allows those providers not having direct access to an LMS or unable to directly install and maintain one (for instance, for economic reasons) to profit of the availability of VESTA-GIS federated platforms. Some training courses have been uploaded and are available on the platforms, whose main aim is to host own and/or national courses or other courses related to the specific fields of interest of the partners involved and/or related to the three thematic streamlines of VESTA-GIS (nature protection, water resources, coast and landscape).Course hosted in the platform are detailed in the Course Catalogue where also instructions and contacts to be enabled to access the course in the VESTA-GIS e-learning platform are reported. A link to the Course Catalogue for the platform is also available.
The access to the training material in the VESTA-GIS platform is only by login. Some of the courses hosted within the platform are also connected to a GeoPortal for practical exercises with actual geo-data and the development of test-cases.
