In 2017, the Mona School of Business and Management, University of West Indies developed the Agribusiness Management Online Course with the support of RADA which led to 20 extension staff trained over a 12 week period through weekly guided sessions.
The sessions were facilitator-led using an online platform. In keeping with the RADA/COL L3F agreement for 2018, the pioneer staff members trained will become resource personnel to facilitate the 2ndcohort of the Agribusiness Management Course over the next 12 weeks commencing in the second week of June 2018.
RADA’s Information and Communication Technology Unit have developed the platform to facilitate the integration of the course online. The portal will allow the resource personnel to facilitate a question and answer forum. The platform will be managed by the ICT unit.
