This page contains national and international online learning resourcesFor additional software specific information see the geospatial software page.

Geoportti encourages the geospatial research and education community to share their materials through existing national services for online educational resources. See the instructions (coming soon!) to learn more on how to share your own online learning materials using national educational resource servicesIf you are a teacher at a Finnish higher education institution and wish to share your geospatial learning materials and collaborate with other teachers, see the Teacher material repository subsection.

Have you already created a learning resource that you wish to share or is there something missing from the list? Let us now here.

The example modules and ways of sharing online learning are currently being developed by University of Turku in collaboration with Fiuginet partner universities. Join in the discussion by contacting us.
