Strand 1: Sources of Agricultural Information

Strand 2: ICT4D models

Strand 3: Open & Distance Learning Methodologies

ICT-infused Extension Support Projects In India : What do we learn from them? Analysis of 6 select projects in India (out of 144) by an MIT-India joint study group in 2005-06 prevalence of top down approaches with few attempts to reflect the end users preferences and needs; production advisory services and market access do not go together;

Analysis of 6 select projects in India (out of 144) by an MIT-India joint study group in 2005-06

prevalence of top down approaches with few attempts to reflect the end users preferences and needs;

production advisory services and market access do not go together;

ICT-infused Extension Support Projects In India : What do we learn from them? Lack of quality & quantity of digital agricultural extension material participation of agricultural education and research institutions is marginal ; Localization and customizability of content are still not practiced on a significant scale.

Lack of quality & quantity of digital agricultural extension material

participation of agricultural education and research institutions is marginal ;

Localization and customizability of content are still not practiced on a significant scale.

Re-designing the farmer-extension-agricultural research/education continuum in India with ICT-mediated Knowledge Management ICRISAT, IIT-Kanpur, IIT-Bombay, GBPUAT, UAS-D, IIITM-K, NAARM

Agricultural Content Content generated for all 9 mandate crops; ( content for 5 crops contributed by ICRISAT) Contributed to collaborative development of 9 crop knowledge models Digital versions of Topic Maps and Concept Maps for 5 crops published Significant infusion of Semantic techniques into the content repository Led by the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi Arid Tropics

Content generated for all 9 mandate crops; ( content for 5 crops contributed by ICRISAT)

Contributed to collaborative development of 9 crop knowledge models

Digital versions of Topic Maps and Concept Maps for 5 crops published

Significant infusion of Semantic techniques into the content repository

Sample Content : Developed by ICRISAT BOTH Quality and Quantity stressed

BOTH Quality and Quantity stressed

Collaborative Development of Knowledge Models

AGROPEDIA http://agropedia.net Agropedia launched ; semantic search interface developed. Content tagged onto Crop Knowledge Models for nine crops Global first in the agricultural sector Capacity Strengthening workshops across India ~ 500 PhD and Masters level professionals Led by Indian Institute of Technology – Kanpur (IIT-K)
