ITEM:  Do-It-Yourself Geo Apps—a new Esri MOOC

Sign up is now open for the first offering of Esri’s 3rd Massive Open Online Course that begins February 3rd.  Do-It-Yourself Geo Apps is designed to show that anyone can build apps on the ArcGIS Platform.

“You don’t have to be a software developer to build valuable geo-enabled apps that make your communities smarter and businesses more successful. This course will show you how to combine location and narrative in one application to better communicate and broadcast your story, create custom web applications that solve problems in your community, and build powerful native applications for iOS and Android devices without touching a piece of code. If you are a developer, you’ll be interested in Esri’s APIs, SDKs, and the buzzing GeoDev community.”

Benefits and objectives of the course are:

·         Understand that geo-enablement means far more than just plotting dots on a map

·         Discover the collection of application templates anyone can configure as custom geo apps for storytelling and more

·         Test-drive Web App Builder and AppStudio to create custom geo apps without coding

·         Learn about the GeoDev Community and the resources Esri provides for software developers.

This 4-week course consists of hands-on exercises, short video lectures, quizzes, polls and discussion.  There are 7 sections that are open throughout the course and are estimated to require 1-2 hours of study per section.  GeoPriSM participants are eligible for 10 hours of credit and a $100 stipend for successful completion of the course.  (Just let Ina know that you’ve registered.)
