A hallmark of AMS Ocean Studies is the flexibility of course implementation. The course can be offered using any combination of the Ocean Studies textbook, Investigations Manual, and Course Website. The course is adaptable to instructional settings ranging from traditional lecture/lab to hybrid to totally online and can be used on a variety of schedules, including semester/quarter, summer session, accelerated degree, or self-paced study. Course materials are designed for easy integration with course management systems. The most common approaches to using the course materials are:

1. Use the full AMS Ocean Studies course package with emphasis on current ocean data - Instructors wanting to have their students study the ocean in near real-time may choose to use the textbook, Investigations Manual, and Current Ocean Studies prepared weekly on the Course Website. A license is required for this option. Go to the Order Class Materials page for details on having your bookstore purchase the AMS Ocean Studies Student Package.

2. Use the Ocean Studies textbook and Investigations Manual - Instructors wanting to prepare all materials prior to the start of the term may choose to use the textbook and Investigations Manual as a full course. Website material may be used as a supplement in this approach. A license is required for this option. Go to the Order Class Materials page for details on having your bookstore purchase the AMS Ocean Studies Student Package.

3. Use the Ocean Studies textbook alone - The Ocean Studies textbook is ideally suited for introductory oceanography lecture courses in which students are not expected to complete the investigations series. Textbook-only users have access to a special Internet website that will deliver the Weekly Ocean News and current ocean products. Course instructors receive a complementary textbook and faculty resource CD. A license is not required for this option, but please contact us to request a faculty set of materials. Go to the Order Class Materials page for details on having your bookstore purchase the Ocean Studies Textbook for students.
