Launch Event

What's the Master's Geo-information Science and Earth Observation about?


Faculty ITC proudly announced the launch of the Living Textbook software and content in an interactive seminar. The Living Textbook is a concept-based environment for knowledge sharing that can be used for education, projects and research. During this virtual seminar different types of users of the Living Textbook presented their experiences. Participants had the opportunity to experience the Living Textbook hands-on. 


The launch event showcased a lot of different topics. Attendants learned more about the process of creating this tool over the last years, a live demo, a hands-on session where they could experience the tool for themselves, a review of the Living Textbook from a knowledge sharing perspective, future plans and ambitions, and lots more. There were inhouse speakers attending (the LTB team), but also external speakers. Our dean Freek van der Meer performed the official software release. 

The seminar took place on Thursday January 28 (10.00-12.00 hours CET). Check out the event recording and the detailed program below.
