New: free online introductory course on citizen science

Earthwatch recently launched their free introductory online course on Citizen Science.

The course was created to provide easily accessible information about key areas of citizen science for practitioners and anyone with an interest in citizen science.

Consisting of five modules, the course introduces citizen science as a field, environmental citizen science, IT/data management in citizen science, participant motivation and finally, evaluation. Each module lasts for about an hour, including watching the short lectures, reading through the suggested publications and trying out the suggested activities.

The course was created as part of the NERC-funded Opening Up Science for All! (OPENER) project. FInd the course here.
