NOAA Multimedia Needs Assessment

Welcome! The NOAA education community recognizes that today educators and students are using live and on demand multimedia content to learn about ocean, atmospheric, climate, and related STEM topics, as well as access education and pedagogic resources and training. In developing multimedia and distance learning materials that convey NOAA’s science, service and stewardship, NOAA must insure that these resources meet the needs of educators and students across the United States. To achieve this goal, we need your help. This short (less than 5 minute) survey will help NOAA identify the types of multimedia content that interests you for use with your students/audiences as well as your own professional development. Your participation is voluntary and your answers completely anonymous. Thank you for your time.

If you are looking for a response to a specific question regarding the National Ocean Service website, please direct your question to a points of contact on the Contact Us page.
