The use of Remote Sensing, Geographical Information System, Global Navigation Satellite System and associated geospatial technologies is increasing rapidly. There is a need of trained human resources on use of geospatial data and information in various thematic domains. The live and interactive mode of distance learning is an innovative method developed by IIRS, ISRO Indian for mass scale training and education through online learning platform.Electronic Collaborative Learning and Knowledge Sharing System (E-CLASS) is an indigenous active learning management system developed by Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS), ISRO India.
Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) under Indian Space Research Organisation, Department of Space, Government of India is a premier Training, Educational and Research Institute established for capacity building in the field of Remote Sensing, Geoinformatics and GNSS technology for Natural Resources, Environmental and Disaster Management. The Institute is running many on-campus short and long term capacity building programmes ranging from three days to two years. To further enhance the outreach of geospatial science and technology IIRS, ISRO offers Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) for international participants.

The Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) - an ISO 9001:2008 institute, is a constituent unit of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Department of Space, Govt. of India. Since its establishment in 1966, IIRS is a key player for training and capacity building in geospatial technology and its applications through training, education and research in Southeast Asia. The training, education and capacity building programmes of the Institute are designed to meet the requirements of Professionals at working levels, fresh graduates, researchers, academia, and decision makers.
Indian Space Research Organisation(ISRO), formed in 1969, superseded the erstwhile INCOSPAR. Vikram Sarabhai, having identified the role and importance of space technology in a Nation's development, provided ISRO the necessary direction to function as an agent of development. ISRO then embarked on its mission to provide the Nation space based services and to develop the technologies to achieve the same independently.
