Abstract

Environmental education has been evolving for many years. Today it has become imperative that the colleges and universities modify their curricula to impart the students with adequate knowledge of earth and environmental sciences. The revolution in information and communication technologies (ICTs) has shaken the foundations of higher education and life-long learning in general. Undergraduate education, utilizing these new technologies, which involves active student participation and inquiry based pedagogy, will be the key to developing a workforce and environmentally literate citizenry who can critically evaluate issues related to environment and natural resources. This research is focused towards the creation and development of a set of interactive, student centered, inquiry-based online learning modules, including simulation and visualization tools that enhance watershed ecosystem science education. The basic aim of this research was to create learning materials that lead students through problem-solving exercises involving real-world watershed management problems and integrates modern technologies to provide a richer vision of complex environmental processes and concepts.
