TAB has published two new papers on "eLearning" in August and the final report of its project on "Precision Agriculture" with the same title [05.09.2006]

TAB Working Report No. 107
Christoph Revermann
eLearning in research, teaching and further education in Germany

The TAB working report No. 107 documents and analyses the state of development and the perspectives of eLearning at the universities in research, teaching and further education on the basis of broad material. To this end an overview of some cornerstones of eLearning activities in German universities is provided and state- and university-projects as well as federal and state spanning programmes and projects are presented.

The documentation of a vast and lively eLearning-scenery is complemented by concluding considerations of the successes and deficits of support activities and of requirements for eLearning usage by which an actual and lasting added value compared to conventional methods and contents of teaching and learning can be achieved.

TAB Background-paper No. 14
Christoph Revermann
eLearning in research, teaching and further education abroad

In the Background-paper a look is taken at eLearning activities in selected countries: Finland, Great-Britain, Switzerland, USA, and Australia. They distinguish themselves that to them an advanced state of implementation and use of eLearning is unanimously attributed. This is confirmed indirectly by looking at the eLearning activities in academic teaching and further education. Here in particular a strong international orientation becomes apparent. The mentioned countries extricate incitations worldwide and pursue actively foreign markets.

TAB Working Report No. 106
Christine Rösch, Marc Dusseldorp, Rolf Meyer
Precision Agriculture

Precision Agriculture (PA) is an innovative management concept in plant production that is based on different new or enhanced technologies - in particular satellite-based positioning and sensor-based survey systems. By using PA one hopes both for a decrease in environmental impacts because of a more precise proportioning of fertilisers and plant protecting agents and an enhancement of the efficiency of plant production and a simplified documentation of operational measures. The report contains analyses of the economic and ecologic potentials of land cultivation via PA as well as options for action in the fields of research and development, sustainability and impact analysis, and diffusion of PA. The Committee on Education, Research and Technology Assessment has taken notice of the final report "Precision Agriculture" in its session on May 10 2006 with broad approval and has decided to publish it as an official printed matter of the Bundestag.
