Dear colleagues,

Please pass this free course opportunity  to your students. Over 1000 students have already registered for the next course starting Feb 23-Mar 29, 2015 on Introduction to Geospatial Technology Using QGIS. Register at https://www.canvas.net/browse/delmarcollege/courses/cn-1681-intro-qgis

For Educators, please note that the curriculum (lecture materials, tutorials etc) is also free for you to share and share alike under the Creative Commons BY 3.0 license.  Please find all the materials at  Github repository   https://github.com/FOSS4GAcademy

For universities and educators it is an excellent opportunity to build your own Geospatial courses using Free and Open Source Geospatial Software.  OSGeo  software and technologies are the major contributor for the global geospatial economy and used by hundreds of thousands of users in academia, governments and business worldwide and rapidly increasing.

GeoAcademy https://foss4geo.wordpress.com  and OSGeo Live   are going to be the two key instruments that "Geo for All" will be using to accelerate Openness in Geoeducation worldwide and the International Map Year 2015 http://internationalmapyear.org is the opportunity we will be using to implement this action.

GeoAcademy  will not only help  expand geospatial education opportunities to thousands of students but more importantly by making all the lectures, tutorials  available in Github  under Creative Commons licence   enables other educators globally to build up their own teaching  resources to suit their requirements.

We look forward to your participation for Openness in Geoeducation worldwide and successful International Map Year activities.

Best wishes,
