Abstract

The goal of this study is the presentation of a learning tool for satellite Remote Sensing. The target group of the learning platform is students of Higher Education Institutions in Greece. The purpose of this work is to use technology as a way to create an environment in which students can learn by doing, receiving feedback, continually refining their understanding and building knowledge. The learning environment is interactive and supports collaborative experiences. Evaluation constitutes a key element of the entire work, as a means to investigate, provide evidence and make judgments about the tool’s effectiveness and benefits. A series of features characterizing the learning platform have been considered in order to assess its function and potential usability. The scores achieved showed that the platform’s design and structure were quite satisfactory and indicated its potential use as a good learning tool for the distribution of knowledge in the field of remote sensing.
