E-LEARNING – BEST PRACTICE IN PHOTOGRAMMETRY, REMOTE SENSING AND GIS – STATUS AND CHALLENGES
Other literature type
Shih, P. T. Y.
In addition to professional training, computer aided teaching has long tradition. The difficult economic situation, however, forced
many customers to take drastic austerity measures in the field of learning. Cost pressure encouraged a new openness to innovative
and tailored learning concepts. As a result e-learning gained more interest and importance promising great benefit to the user. Around
the world a variety of well-designed e-learning products exist. The web pages of Commission VI/2 (<a href = "http://www.igg.tuberlin.
de/ISPRS/</a>) provide a decision aid to locate relevant material. Links to websites known to the authors are listed; a search
function allows selective access, taking account of quality criteria. This article describes best practice e-learning applications in
photogrammetry, remote sensing and GIS. The rating is based on results of the Computer Assisted Teaching CONtest (CATCON)
initiated by ISPRS, and on observation of recent developments.
