AUTHORS: Seth Dixon, Rhode Island College

ABSTRACT: ArcGIS online, especially StoryMaps, are powerful tools that can be used by undergraduate students to communicate spatial information, scientific data, organize information, or to craft an argument.  Too often, only students from a few select majors are ever exposed to cartographic skills and GIS platforms.  Students from a diverse set of academic background can benefit from using geospatial tools; in this session I will discuss strategies to design courses that will attract students to a cartography/mapping course beyond the typical students and increase interdisciplinary of GIS on campus.
