Recent research shows that 20% of the about 100,000 visitors to the video sharing platform of Access Agriculture come from African Universities. Hence the Regional Universities for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) and Access Agriculture (an international NGO that serves as an independent, not-for-profit global facilitator for the sharing of relevant, quality farmer training videos in support of sustainable agriculture, natural resource management and markets in developing countries) signed, in 2015, a Memorandum of Understanding
to further stimulate video use in universities and progressively include video mediated learning into the curricula of universities (extension schools).
This event aimed to: Create awareness for video mediated learning among Higher Education institutions, mainly universities and initiate the inclusion of video mediated learning into the curriculum of universities, especially in the curriculum of schools of extension and rural development
- Share the experience of pilot universities in video use in extension and teaching
- hare research outputs on video mediated learning
- Introduce a selection of university lecturers to basic techniques of farmer training videos (fact sheet development, script writing and video production)
