ArcGIS Online Challenge (learning path)

Explore potential uses of ArcGIS Online in your research and teaching at Ohio State

Learning Objectives

Module 5 provides you with an opportunity to bring it all together, synthesizing the key GIS concepts and ArcGIS Online skills you learned in the previous four modules with potential applications for your own research and teaching.


Through completing this module, you will:

  1. Develop an outline for using GIS in a research project or teaching assignment relevant to your own work

Final Activity

Instructions: Below, you will find links to two fillable PDF forms, which are meant to be used as a guide as you begin developing an outline for how you can apply what you've learned through the ArcGIS Online Challenge to your own research and teaching. For the final activity, we ask that you choose one (but feel free to do both) to download and complete based on your planned next steps for using your new skills (est. 60 min.).



Activity Submission: When you have completed your outline, please submit a copy to Your responses will only be shared with Josh Sadvari and Katie Phillips, facilitators of the ArcGIS Online Challenge.


Consultation Request: When you submit your outline, please let us know if you would like us to follow up with you about scheduling a consultation. We are happy to answer any questions that may have arisen during this activity and to discuss how we might assist you with moving your ideas forward.
