Abstract

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations initiated a partnership-based e-learning programme in 2001 to support information management professionals called the Information Management Resource Kit (IMARK). IMARK is targeted at information professionals in developing countries. Five curricula have been developed which introduce the latest concepts, approaches and tools for information management and exchange. Each IMARK curriculum is designed through a consultative process with subject matter experts, field practitioners and representatives from the target audience from around world. The modules are made freely available on the Internet, as well as on CD to ensure access to developing country learners subject to low-bandwidth and/or high connectivity costs. The intention is that all IMARK modules be produced in English, French, Spanish, Arabic and Chinese.
