Oostende, Belgium website

OceanTeacher is an activity of the International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) Programme of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC). Since 2006 OceanTeacher is also used as a repository for knowledge and training materials related to operational oceanography (GOOS) and marine meteorology (JCOMM).

The objective of OceanTeacher is to support IODE training activities by providing training tools for Oceanographic Data and Information management. The focus is therefore mainly on data and information management to oceanography and marine meteorology (marine data management, marine information management, marine spatial planning, etc.). The Ocean Teacher system is comprised of two components:
- the OceanTeacher Digital Library (a collection of knowledge and resources)
- the OceanTeacher Classroom (a collection of course outlines and courseware)
