At the end of the course, there is a summative test that covers the full course content, where students are given only one chance to answer each question. They are then given a mark for the overall test; a pass mark results in a course certificate being awarded automatically. Students can retake the course – and therefore the final test – as many times as they want. The content of the course is available to download as a PDF file for later reference or for use when working with farmers groups.

How courses are developed
To develop our e-learning courses, the core team decides the curriculum and manages a group of experts, and a team of course developers. The experts advise on the curriculum and locate or develop the scientific or technical material used to develop the course. If needed, the experts simplify the material, or source additional material.
