Results

In this working phase the project will implement an e-learning system, based on the open source Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment) software. This will incorporate the functionalities of learning and content management. The planned topic-oriented course structure will built along a well-planned time-line. The course will be highly structured, It not just a store of online learning contents, where the participants are left alone (to learn in their own pace).

Based on the results of the needs-analysis the consortium will elaborate a syllabus and learning content. The authoring and review of all content will be established a strong collaboration of the partnership. The results are fundamentally defining the quality and success of the project results.

During the proposal writing phase we prepared a preliminary plan for the modules and estimated the size of the contents, however this plan can be modified according to the results of the needs-analysis.

Intellectual Outcome 2 provides detailed information about the supply side, i.e. how vocational education must meet the needs of demands for existing and future Agriculture 4.0 skills. The results of the survey provides directly usable information for the educational system itself, but its conclusions forms a very important input for follow-on working phases, including the development of the training.

The aim was to get answers on the questions as follows:

Intellectual Outcome 1 aimed to get a state-of-art overview about the ICT uptake of agricultural companies in Macedonia and in Hungary, the present level of Agriculture 4.0 relative to the EU trend, and about the offer and demand in the agricultural workforce with special focus on the digital competences of the workers.

An extensive analysis of the state of the art in use of ICT in agriculture and precision farming was conducted im each target country as well as on the level of EU. These analyses serve as a baseline for following parts of the project.
