    COL’s Communications Manager, Mr Obinna Okwelume, in a press release on Friday in Abuja, mentioned that the programs, ‘Fundamentals of Agricultural Extension’ and ‘Integrated Disease Management,’ had been out there to learners anyplace on the planet for gratis.

    He mentioned that within the agMOOCs Consortium, no prior studying within the topics was required for learners.

    Okwelume mentioned that the MOOCs had been supplied on the stage of a course in an undergraduate programme.
