Abstract

Establishing a set of electronic multimedia educational programs will expedite the understanding and implementation of key precision agriculture technologies. Several universities and private sector partners have joined together to accomplish this task and to make the material relevant to a diverse audience. Sections include base subject information, grower experiences, potential applications, guidance on how to determine the value of application techniques, and links to additional information. The learning modules (provided in a multimedia format) include information on Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Variable Rate Technologies (VRT), Remote Sensing (RS), sampling and scouting techniques, yield and quality monitoring, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The programs of the University of Georgia (UGA) and of Washington State University (WSU) are highlighted. A discussion of the fundamentals of electronic publishing is included. The design of a Internet-era educational program is crucial not only so that the material is conveyed in an efficient and effective way, but also so that ongoing maintenance is minimized.
