Abstract

Interactive Fundamental Agricultural Resource Modules or “iFARM” is web-based interactive modules that demonstrate ways to approach complex agricultural situations which are viable to learning about plants, soils and sustainable agroecosystems. The interactive modules are designed to employ two pedagogical objectives: scientific principles and critical thinking. The authors intend to investigate how the interactive modules affect on students’ learning experiences both intellectually and psychologically. The goal of the study is to increase awareness of the holistic approach in agriculture that encompasses sustainable management practices. There have been no online resources available to integrate sustainable production practices in ongoing crop production situations. This study will be able to suggest best practices of designing and developing online resources in applied sciences disciplines.
