ArcGIS Pro: Lessons Learned for an Introduction to GIS Course
Track: Teaching and Research
Authors: Nathan Strout
In the Fall semester of 2015, the University of Redlands began teaching its Introduction to GIS courses using ArcGIS Pro. Our primary motivations were to introduce this application to students who will see it with increasingly prevalence in the workplace and take advantage of a modern ribbon-based interface more familiar to today’s undergraduate student. It does, however, present some challenges as a new product with some issues and features still in development and a lack of teaching materials.
