A hallmark of AMS Ocean Studies is the flexibility of course
implementation. The course can be offered using any combination of the Ocean
Investigations Manual, and RealTime Ocean Portal (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 RealTime Ocean Portal. A
license is required. 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
eInvestigations Manual as a full course. Website material may be used as a
supplement in this approach. A license is
required. Go to the Order Class
Materials page for details on having your bookstore purchase the Ocean Studies Student Package.
3. Use the Ocean Studies textbook and RealTime Ocean Portal
- The Ocean Studies textbook is ideally suited for
introductory oceanography lecture courses in which students are not expected to
complete the investigations series. The RealTime Ocean Portal can supplement textbook study with current ocean data, Weekly Ocean News, and other resources. Go
to the Order Class Materials page for details on
having your bookstore purchase the Ocean Studies Textbook and RealTime Ocean Portal access for students.
