The first semester of Online Ocean Studies was delivered to the students without any modification to the material as received from the AMS. During the AMS Ocean Studies Implementation Workshop in July 2008 at the University of Washington many ideas were presented which will be incorporated in the Spring 2009 Online Ocean Studies course, such as near real-time data from ARGO Floating Buoys. The new material will also be included in on-campus courses in geology and earth science
