As a first step towards enabling the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in agriculture, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research is developing national level agricultural knowledge management portals. The flagship initiative for this is development of an exclusive portal on rice viz., Rice Knowledge Management Portal.
A training and information support will be developed using e-learning strategies. With two dimensions: Synchronous on-line training support and Asynchronous knowledge support. In this category, around 15 e-learning courses / modules will be developed using open source and commercial softwares with all inbuilt customizing content management system (CMS). These courses /modules will have several units built on number of Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs). Using these RLOs many courses can be customized to cater to the needs of cross section of rice workers.
