Penn State's "Maps and the Geospatial Revolution" Offered through Coursera.org Starts April 30th, 2014!

I took this program last year and it was a good refresher. I'd highly recommend it to those interested in getting into G.I.S. and those looking to expand their resume with a verified certificate. Check it out Maps and the Geospatial Revolution!

Additionally I'd be happy to answer questions about my experience with the course and I'll likely be taking again this year for a verified certificate.

Has anyone completed an online Geospatial Education program from Penn State? I'm considering a post-bac certificate but I was hoping r/GIS could give me some input...

I have degrees in Spanish and Soil and Water Science but was hoping to augment my resume with some GIS education. I'm going to be taking the Maps and the Geospatial Revolution course through Coursera this summer to get a feel for the classes and one of the instructors of the of the uni as well as see what it can offer me. Has anyone else in r/GIS taken any of these courses and found them to be useful?
