Abstract

Several approaches have been proposed to make practical work available in e-learning trainings. The visits of field represent an indispensable complement to the theoretical course given to students in the natural sciences and life sciences. Biodiversity areas may be politically unstable and potentially dangerous for non-residents. The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the improvement of distance education in agricultural sectors by providing a collaborative platform for virtual field visits and even sharing resources.
