We are proud to announce the launch of EAMENA’s multilingual Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) in Endangered Archaeology: Using Remote Sensing to Protect Cultural Heritage.
Heritage is essential to our sense of identity and place in the world, but more than ever our heritage is under threat from conflict, tourism, natural disasters, and climate change. This puts archaeology at the heart of contemporary political and social debates. We work to sustain and protect cultural heritage for future generations. We do this through documentation, research, training, and consultancy, and by seeking to understand how people across the globe engage with, and respond to, their own heritage and that of others.
A key element of our heritage protection work is training and knowledge exchange with cultural heritage professionals around the globe. We are therefore delighted to announce the launch of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) entitled Endangered Archaeology: Using Remote Sensing to Protect Cultural Heritage. Developed by researchers from EAMENA (Endangered Archaeology in the Middle East and North Africa), working in Durham, Oxford, and Leicester the MOOC teaches users to identify and monitor heritage sites using satellite imagery and explores basic mapmaking to help communicate information about their condition. The MOOC will be a key resource for people throughout the MENA region interested in cultural heritage and archaeology who are keen to develop their skillset.
The MOOC is available in English, Arabic, French and Farsi. Follow the links below to register & learn how to use satellite remote sensing to protect cultural heritage with our FREE online course!
