More details

The ArcGIS system has become a platform upon which geospatial solutions are built and shared. Central to the platform is ArcGIS Online, which combines the capabilities of GIS software-as-a-service (SaaS) and a geospatial content management system. GIS educators rightly ask how the evolution of the ArcGIS platform affects the way they teach. In this webinar, Esri's Education Team will present a framework for deploying ArcGIS in higher education curricula. Leading GIS educators will discuss the framework, pose questions and discuss alternatives.
