Paper Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present a proposal for an e-learning course in the field of remote sensing and environmental applications. E-learning is an educational process supported by specially developed educational material. The students can study and learn without, necessary, the physical presence of a teacher. The educational profile of students is determined. These are High School students in the Secondary Education Grade. The educational material is described in such a way that it would be suitable for distance learning and to cover the educational needs and requirements of students that could be used as an additional material in the Physical Sciences. The educational material includes electronic components designed with Courselab and presented in the Moodle platform. The objective is the transfer of knowledge regarding remote sensing environmental applications in a "friendly" way to the students. Thus, students attending the course will have the ability to fulfill their knowledge and adapt new skills.
