'Back to School: Google Earth for Teachers

screen shot of new content in GEFT

Back in May I released an 'open course' devoted to helping Geography school teachers use Google Earth as a GIS in their teaching: Google Earth for Teachers (GEFT).  The 'core' content was 6 up to date videos.  Following feedback from teachers using it over the summer I've made some changes:
  • It now has its own domain 'GEforTeachers.com' (update 5th Nov 2013: which redirects you to a Moodle site)
  • You no longer have to register to access, just choose 'guest' middle of the way down on the left at the entry page.
  • I've added an 'Advanced' section with tools and tutorials for those who are beyond introductory level.
I'd love to hear what you think of it!

Your link is redirected to the following: https://moodle.soton.ac.uk/login/index.php

If geforteachers.com is entered, you are sent to the same site. Please check this out and correct it.

yes, that's where it's supposed to go, I've added a note to point that out.
