Publisher: GeoTech Center
Description: This paper from Vince DiNoto of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System addresses technology in GIS education, specifically the GIS application desktop and remote control technology:
"Currently, there are two major areas of work in leading edge technology to accommodate the learner no matter if they are in a virtual, hybrid or in a traditional classroom environment and that can also be used in secondary and post secondary classes. The first area is to insure that full versions of software are available to the student, both on and off campus. The student is not required to load software, with the exception of a web browser plug in. The second area is providing students with data for base maps, in multiple formats. This is an effort to facilitate learning and remove many of the traditional frustrations/barriers for introductory users and students." Users may download this paper in PDF file format.
