The Center for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence – Ocean Systems (COSEE-OS) has a suite of multimedia tools designed to enhance the teaching of ocean and climate science. The Ocean Climate Interactive (OCI) began as a concept map developed by research scientists and was later translated into an on-line flash application. The graphical user interface encourages exploration of linked science concepts. Connections between topics are communicated visually via interactive elements, and users have access to a vetted database of news resources, lesson plans, videos and images. The Concept Map Builder (CMB) allows users to create their own concept maps for use as teaching resources. Users can attach assets from the OCI database to transform their concept maps into an interactive multimedia teaching tool. Scientists and educators trained to use the tools in COSEE collaborative workshop can supplement their education and outreach efforts to more effectively reach their target audiences.
