FLDs - Seeing is Believing

One of the major functions of Agricultural Scientists and Extension workers is disseminating useful and practical information obtained through research to farmers. The efficient and effective ways to do this among others is through well-planned and carefully organized Frontline Demonstrations (FLDs). The on-farm FLDs serve as one of the most effective Extension Education tools ever developed for transfer of technology.


Learn Rice

LearnRice is a multi-dimensional e-learning platform of Rice Knowledge Management Portal, an initiative under National Agricultural Innovation project (NAIP) of ICAR. In the current scenario of fast changing Technology world, learning is considered to be a lifelong exercise. We appreciate the fact that larger number of rice stakeholders across the country have limitations in terms of access, quality and cost-effective learning opportunities. Not all the stakeholders are privileged to get their rice knowledge updated on 24x7 basis. It is in this context, it is felt that there should be an online platform for enabling & supporting the capacity building exercises in the rice sector of the country. Hence this innovative gateway of learning..LearnRice.

We understand that when we do so, it requires a flexible and effective medium for learning, which provides facility to the learner to learn anywhere at any time in his own pace. This way of learning is considered to be learner centric in contradiction to the traditional teacher centric learning. The rapid evolution of Internet and Web Technologies provided a medium for the information interchange as well as seamless interaction and collaboration of the users. A lot of interest is generated across the world in the field of e-Learning. Many new tools and concepts are evolving and are being explored throughout the world to make this concept a big success.

LearnRice is the e-Learning framework developed by customising the e-Sikshak platform of CDAC, an RKMP consortium partner.
While we continue to provide online learning opportunities, we wish to take these courses to large number of stakeholders through offline CDs and non-digital delivery mechanisms.

Learn Rice Moodle

With a view to bringing about knowledge based sustainable rice development, a project on Applications of E-Learning in Agriculture: Designing an ODL Learning Content Management System (LCMS) for Rice Technologies. This final product of this project is an e-learning platform namely LEARNRICE.

Rice crop is interwoven in the cultural, social and economic life of millions of Indian and it holds the key for food and nutritional security of the country. Enormous knowledge has been developed about this crop and there is a need to share this knowledge for the betterment of our society.  Indian rice research and rice development programmes have been recognized as successful model endeavors all over the world.  However, given the burgeoning task of further enhancing the production and productivity of rice, the existing information sharing mechanisms appear to be inadequate.

The present project is an initiative to gear up with the new technological and content needs of the rice sector near future. The ODL Learning Content Management System (LCMS) for Rice Technologies in place will help enhancing the online and offline training opportunities for the farmers, extension workers, development departments, NGOs and other key actors in large-scale adoption of improved rice technologies and knowledge across the country.  This will help in linking the effective learning with the immediate working conditions of the farmers and other rice workers.  Supporting immediate application of the learning in local situation will be an important outcome of the project.  It is expected that such an innovative extension approach using Open and Distance Learning methods will enhance the access to improved rice knowledge and information across the country, contributing to the agricultural development.  This endeavour will also help opening up new vistas in the distance learning and capacity building in the agriculture sector, a sector on which 65% Indian population depends for its livelihood.
