A hands-on e-learning course to create and tell engaging stories based on climate change data by using different approaches.
Explore this Application to learn more about the Climate Literacy Project and its Outputs and make use of the e-Learning Material available to enrich understanding about Climate Change. This material also includes an exciting Online Game and Quizzes.
Polar Explorer is an education app. It educates the user about past, present and future sea level with the help of maps and images created with real data. The app includes text, audio and questionnaire which is helpful to study approximately hundred topics.
This video introduces the acceleration in sea level rise and risks associated with it. It is a part of Changing Planet series by National Science Foundation, NBC Learn.
This video gives an overview of Climate and Health, and especially about the vector-borne diseases.
This introductory e-course produced by UN CC Learn contains six modules: Climate Change Science, International Legal and Policy Framework for Climate Change, Climate Change Adaptation, Climate Change Mitigation, Climate Change Finance, Planning for Climate Change.
A classroom/laboratory activity to examine and analyze squirrel species distribution and habitat data (from the USA) over time, and to interpret the possible relationship between climate change and changes in biodiversity.
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about the isotopes of hydrogen and oxygen, analyze the isotopic composition of ice, and understand how isotopic compositions can be used to recreate past temperatures and climate.
Students will plot graphs to analyze data from the Vostok ice core in Antarctica, learn about the ice age and the gas age, calculate past temperatures using hydrogen isotope data, and discuss the possible impacts of changes in carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) concentrations on climate.
Use this tool to help your students find answers to:
- How can you use hydrogen isotope data in an ice core to determine temperature?
- How can the isotopic composition of air bubbles in ice cores be used to recreate past climate?

A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about linear slope, trends, confidence intervals, and Student’s t-distribution by calculating trends and uncertainties using hurricane data records over 40 years.
A classroom/laboratory activity to understand tragedy of the commons through case studies and discuss global warming as a tragedy of the commons.
A reading to learn about the economic analysis of climate change, and various economic policies for climate change adaptation and mitigation.
An e-learning course to learn about the Earth’s climate system, climate change in the past and present, the impact of climate change, and measures for adaption and mitigation.
Teaching modules to learn about climate change science and climate change literature by analyzing and interpreting data and by performing rhetorical analyses of climate change literature.
This e-learning course contains video lectures and exercises based on the use of different models/simulators to explain the science of climate change. Several factors that influence the climate of planet Earth are discussed and the course also includes material related to the “forecast for humans’ impact on Earth’s climate”.
Teaching modules to learn about climate justice in the context of the world and in the context of British Columbia (BC).
