“I was especially happy to be exposed to using tools (e.g. Dgroups, blogs, etc) which I had only seen, but never quite understood how they worked. I am glad we have been able to start one D-group as a result of this workshop. I’ll now be looking to identify & advise on areas where we can apply these tools to work more efficiently.”

“Acquérir des nouvelles connaissances ou techniques en ce domaine précis me réconforte dans mes activités; étant appelé à faciliter les contacts au sein des réseaux local et national en information agricole. J’ai découvert d’autres outils de diffusion de l’information que le blog que je mettrai à profit.”

“Lots of what was shared and taught was in some way already known, however bringing things into perspective for online groups was most insightful. I will take away from the workshop the clear image that so long as the purpose of the group is kept constantly in focus then the facilitator can find paths to get there.”

“This workshop has been an eye-opener and I am very glad to have participated. Building trust as you get to know the people is still important for successful work.”

“I am now a little more confident about participating in online discussions and may even try now to link up with the group I met previously.”
