Promoting the use of Open Data facilitates more attractive conditions and practical relevance of research and education. OpenGeoEdu aims to prepare Open (Geo-)Data for education and science and to provide open access to cost-free data without restrictions. The use of Open Data will be taught with best practice examples from Geospatial Science and Technology that are conveyed in the form of e-learning lessons and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). This talk will summarize the current state of the project, which just started in Summer 2017, and discuss its concepts and implementation. We present an online-platform for searching Open Data portals and Geodatainfrastructures and describe our prospective e-learning environment.
