Resources For Students: How to Succeed in an Esri MOOC
gvSIG has launched a free course about Geographic Information Systems applied to Municipality Management through several video-tutorials.
Currently, you can see the list of topics and the first module available already in .
In the next few weeks, they will publish the other modules, that we will include at this playlist: 
The first two modules are theoretical, about differences between GIS and CAD, and reference systems, very important to understand the rest of the course. From the third one, the modules will be practical, and the cartography will be available for each video.
In addition, when the course is finishing it will be possible to get the official certificate given by the gvSIG Association, where it will be obligatory to send a complete exercise.
All the information about registration, dates, certification, where to send doubts... is available at the frequent questions section of the first post .
