The Inter-University Scientific and Methodological Centre for Aerospace Methods of Research and Mapping was established in 1978 at the Faculty of Geography of the Moscow State University on the base of Aerospace Methods Laboratory. The activity of the Centre has long been directed to strengthening of remote sensing education in Russian universities by organizing short-term intensive training courses and workshops for university teachers and by elaborating special training-aids on application of remotely sensed images for geographic research. In recent years the educational work of the Centre has been directed towards teaching satellite images interpretation for earth science with the help of up-to-date technologies. Since 2000 Internet-based technologies of teaching were being introduced. Educational material of the first five Internet-seminars are planned to be fixed as an electronic manual, or training aids on CD-ROM. Content and structure of the manual are discussed.
