The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.
This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

A workshop on Moodle as a new Learning Management System (LMS) was given to the teachers along with their technical assistants of College of Agricultural and Marine Sciences (CAMS), Sultan Qaboos University, Sultanate of Oman (SQU), in the academic summer semester-2010. The workshop was designed to help CAMS college teachers to develop their agricultural academic courses on Moodle platform and to improve the effectiveness of their teaching methods as well. Also, to engage students in active leaning and improve their educational technology. Fourteen participants including academic faculties and their technical staffs attended the workshop affectively. A copy of online e-course CROP3514 Fruit Production, which was developed on Moodle, was used by some participants to practice on it. Participants were taught how to use Moodle components and how to upload all their course materials; Lecture outlines, objectives, weekly lectures, laboratory sessions, term projects and supplemental reading materials such as research or popular articles. Participants also learned how to announce for field trips, quizzes, exams, exam marks, and deadlines for assignments on Moodle platform. Moreover, participants were taught how to use learning forum and how to interact as teachers in the different types of discussion forums with their students. They learned how to use the calendar, chat and messaging tools, as well as including various resources in their courses such as photographs, YouTube videos and Google documents for student project work. As a result, the workshop was useful, with five participants, developing their courses on Moodle system in the fall and spring semesters-2010-2012. A trend showed that the developed courses on Moodle facilitated and strengthen teachers-students interaction, learning communication and made learning more interest and effective to students. Students learning thinking became more critical and deeper. More workshops on E-learning at CAMS are needed.
