But offering lifelong learning to farmers in developing countries) is a vital challenge as majority of them are residing in remote and rural areas and have low educational qualification and lower socio-economic status. Web Based Learning (WBL) can support us in this cause because world over it is increasingly recognized as a viable and learner-friendly approach.
