The Geoscience Online Learning Initiative (GOLI) by the American Geosciences Institute, started in cooperation with the American Institute of Professional Geologists, provides a platform for asynchronous, life-long learning and continuing education opportunities in the geosciences.
GOLI live webinar events provide up to date information on technical and applied geoscience topics and are taught by a range of experts from across the geosciences. Attendees earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
GOLI asynchronous online courses provide learners with the flexibility to actively self-pace their progress, since asynchronous courses do not have a set schedule like traditional academic semester-based courses. Brought to you via the Open edX Learning Management System (LMS), learners are able to browse course descriptions, enroll in specific courses, access content, and complete any course completely free of charge. All learners who complete online courses offered through the GOLI platform with a passing grade of 70% or higher are eligible to purchase Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for a nominal charge.
