Course Description

This course is covering basic skills using Google Earth. Students will learn how to navigate, turn, zoom, pan and swivel around the globe. The course also highlights where a student can find basic data about elevation, depth, coordinates, etc. A quick exploration of different layers available to Google Earth users will also give them a taste of the capacities of the program.

This is a basic course, so very basic knowledge of geography, software and hardware technology is necessary.

The only thing that students need to complete the course is the Google Earth program downloaded and installed. No textbook, no external links, etc.

The course should take 2 to 4 weeks to complete at a leisurely pace. However serious students could tackle it and digest it in a couple of days.

Instructor Biography

Mr. Cedric Ebiner, Language Instructor

I am a French-speaking Swiss native born in Lausanne. After completing my primary and secondary education in the homeland, I moved to Southern California for college. I attended Cal Poly Pomona and got hired at Loyola High School after graduation. I have been working at this college prep school since 1998 as a French and Latin instructor.

A little bit over ten years ago, we started homeschooling our children and I quickly became aware of the need for Latin instructors in this field. I began teaching children who are homeschooled and had a great time doing this in person. Due to professional schedule changes I have had to consider new avenue to teach my homeschoolers. That is why I am now on Udemy.

Learning a language not only open possibilities to engage with people from different parts of the world but it also open one's mind like not many other experiences.

I hope you enjoy my classes.
