A little Monday Motivation and a Geo Education / Online Training tip to kick off the week as we share details of another fine MOOC being offered by Esri Education. Kicking off February 1, Esri is launching a new educational course titled “Do it Yourself Geo Apps”. What better way to kick off 2017 than with a little professional development and free learning?
Esri reminds us all in this course that you really don’t have to be a hard-core programmer, coder, or geek to learn how to code! From Esri, “You don’t have to be a software developer to build valuable geo-enabled apps that make your communities smarter and businesses more successful.”
About the class:
This course will show you how to combine location and narrative in one application to better communicate and broadcast your story, create custom web applications that solve problems in your community, and build powerful native applications for iOS and Android devices without touching a piece of code. If you are a developer, you’ll be interested in Esri’s APIs, SDKs, and the buzzing GeoDev community.
This 4 week course if delivered online via 7 sections, each demanding about 1-2 hours of your time to complete. Upon completion you’ll receive a certificate to hang on your wall and have a valuable skill to add to your resume.
Students taking the MOOC will learn about the following:
- Geo-enabling apps
- Building apps for smart communities
- Tell your story with maps
- Creating native apps
- Using Open Data in your apps
- Custom Coding tips
- Discovering Geodev community resources
