Information about the project
IMARK: INFORMATION MANAGEMENT RESOURCE KIT
FAO has initiated a partnership-based e-learning initiative known as the Information Management Resource Kit (IMARK) which will train individuals in the effective management of agricultural information. IMARK learning materials are being developed as a series of modules on CD-ROM, supplemented by an Internet-based online community, for contributors and learners to exchange views and share information. IMARK covers several major subject areas in information management. The modules introduce the latest concepts, approaches and tools for information management, using interactive tutorials specifically designed for individual self-paced learning. Access to IMARK is free of charge in up to five languages.
