The Maritime Lectures

The Maritime Lectures is a subsidiary of Marecon Ltd, an organisation founded in 1997 by Dr Martin Stopford to provide a vehicle for his work in Maritime education.  The Maritime lectures website was developed to provide support for anyone involved in running academic courses relating to the Maritime industry, or training staff to work in the industry.  Using Martin Stopford's textbook "Maritime Economics" as a framework, the website has been developed to provide an easily accessible "third dimensional" Maritime education.  Its aim is to provide "blended learning" support to teachers and trainers, in the form of short videos; graphic material; Web links and simple tests to help make the basic learning process more efficient.

The following short video (to be added later) summarises the background and approach to developing the Maritime lectures.
