Virtual learning

13 November 2012

Met Office College Online, MOCO, a virtual learning environment accessed via the web, has been developed for customers of the Met Office College.

The new interactive website contains different resources and activities including e-learning modules, videos, PDFs, questionnaires, chat rooms and quizzes.

Some MOCO content is available to all, but after registration, customers can select and pay online for single course licences. The site is initially being made available to the offshore oil and gas market and the first course on the site is for Offshore Met Observers.

More e-learning courses will be developed to complement our existing portfolio of courses. MOCO will also start to be integrated into all classroom courses with resources being made available online for delegates to access before, during and after attending courses.

There are plans to integrate web conferencing into the site so that live training can be delivered remotely. This will be particularly useful for international capacity building projects, where delegate travel is prohibitively expensive.
