The AgLR 2008 e-Conference aims to initiate dialogue around the topic of Agricultural Learning Resources, involving organizations and individuals that are active in the field of agricultural learning repositories. The workshop is supported and promoted by the Agricultural Learning Repositories Task Force (AgLR-TF) which has been created to help make available online, on a global scale, collections of learning resources that are on topics essential for the development and welfare of agricultural and rural populations around the world. Its aim is to take advantage of the experience of stakeholders that are already involved in the development and operation of agricultural learning repositories. These stakeholders can promote and share their experience (in the form of guidance, standards, technologies, tools, recommendations, and good practices) in a variety of topics. The e-Conference, which lasts five weeks, will be an electronically facilitated event.
