GDC-ERD encourages students and interested individuals to attend online GIS/RS tutorials, here we list some good resources of such tutorials which are given for free of charge at some  international universities and centers. The online courses are supported with manuals, exercises and training data sets  that helps you to start learning on your own. GDC-ERD encourages such online training before attending courses led by coach, to overcome the technical terms and language barriers that is  interlinked with geospatial technology. Moreover, online courses make you become familiar to geospatial technology and its related computer skills .... etc., these sites are including: -
