How To Use the Curriculum

Recommended Usage

We recommend you use the entire curriculum, viagra sales but we also realize that many instructors may just need one module such as Biofuels in Agriculture, Solar in Agriculture, etc. The modules are set up to be used in succession, however you can modify them to fit your needs. You can mix and match any of these modules to make up your own curriculum if you wish. Some instructors may want to package the modules for use in an online course, but keep in mind these modules were developed for a F2F (face to face) live course.  You would need to modify the files to make them effective in an online course through the use of voice over narrations, animations, and other interactions such as online discussions.

System Requirements

  • Projector
  • PowerPoint 2007 or greater
  • Mac or PC
