It is attractive to use the Russian Satellite Remote Sensing Data and WWW as an integrative medium for distant learning in Earth Observation Education. Creation of this inter-university network resource pursues the following goals: provision of remote access to electronic information resources of satellite environmental monitoring for the university community; development of geoinformation technologies for satellite data processing and their introduction into Earth sciences through distant e-learning based on supercomputer systems. The basis for information resources of distant learning system is formed by: development of user interface for the Internet access; development of the IKI Web Server and installation of education resources on the Web Server; information services and support for the distant learning system. Website being developed is a set of software and hardware that includes a Database Server, a Web Server and the means for their interaction. This software and hardware set allows creating an efficient system of presentation for an Earth Observation Education and Training System.
