The Unidata Program Center is implementing and coordinating a Teaching Resources Network that allows educators to create, access, and share collections of resource material related to atmospheric, oceanic, and other earth system phenomena. While the Teaching Resources facility can manage almost any type of electronic resource, it is designed with scientific data and products, teaching tools such as lesson plans and guided exercises, and tools for displaying data in mind. In addition to being very easy for educators and students to access, the facility makes it simple for other educators and scientists to contribute content related to their own areas of expertise to the collection. This allows existing resources to grow in depth and breadth over time, enhancing their relevance and providing insights from multiple disciplines.
Based on the open-source RAMADDA content/data management framework, the teaching resource facility provides a variety of built-in services to analyze and display data, as well as support for Unidata's rich 3D client, the Interactive Data Viewer (IDV).
Many resources are hosted on the Unidata Program Center's RAMADDA server. But the RAMADDA architecture allows the Teaching Resources Network to seamlessly incorporate resources hosted on any properly configured server. One search allows you to find resource materials made available by any participating site.
