Here we will give you an introduction on our new e-learning tool, that has been developed as part of the SEA-EU initiative at Kiel University.
Students and lecturers can experience a virtual excursion on the research vessel ALKOR on the Kiel Fjord.
At different stations on the fjord, interested students from all disciplines can now collect water and sediment samples digitally. DigiCruise can also be integrated into teaching modules in a variety of disciplines.

The aim of digiCruise is to bring the learning content of a marine science excursion into the digital classroom. Realistically animated devices such as a CTD are used to take samples in the water column, on which various parameters such as salinity or oxygen can be measured in a virtual laboratory. The virtually collected data helps to draw conclusions about the changing environmental conditions.
