This paper deals with the experiences from a Leonardo Pilot Project, E-GIS (www.e-gis.org) that was implemented during the time period from 021101 until 060131. During the project period a study program, 100 % Internet based, corresponding to one year full time study was implemented – resulting in 8 course modules that were developed and tested out during the project. Ten partners from six European countries participated in the project.
GIS – Geographical Information Systems – is a computer-based tool for handling digital map data. If we generalise, we can say that GIS is a program for analysing digital map data to which are connected attribute data (spatially dependant phenomena), for statistical treatment – such as resource- and environmental planning, transport logistics, registration of archeological findings etc.
The main objectives of the E-GIS project was to establish a co-operation between European Universities and GIS user organisations and to develop modularised courses intended for Internet based learning. A heavy evaluation task was performed, based on digital questionnaires and interviews. The development, course implementation, partner experiences, course- and student evaluation will be described and presented during EADTU 2007.
