The objective of Ocean Teacher* is to provide training tools for Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange. These tools are used during IODE Training Courses but can also be used for self training and continuous professional development.
This is the principal repository of educational materials. It contains many hundreds of documents organized into a browser-friendly, topical hierarchy. Also included are Exercises and data format Examples.
Because the Digital Library is very large, direct browsing of the materials (while possible) is difficult. An alternate approach to finding materials of interest is offered through Course Manuals. Developed to address specific topics, they are presented as annotated outlines that "point" into the Digital Library. The Courses included instructions to students, as they are intended for use in IODE training workshops.
An introductory course, the Table of Contents, contact information and statistics about the Digital Library contents.
