University of Illinois Extension, in partnership with Illinois Risk Management Agency and North Central Risk Management Education Center deliverd a basic computer education course for middle-aged Illinois farmers. These are the farmers who were out of schools before computers became a part of our culture. The Program is called Andy’s Project—Computer Education for Farmers. Andy´s Project is a four- meeting workshop, each meeting lasting 2 hours. Farmers are hands-on from the minute they walk into class. They are placed in groups of five and work on laptops connected to the internet. They learn how to navigate their computes, manage files, use commercial spreadsheets, connect to and search the internet. Homework required that they use the skills they learned in each class on their computers at home. This style of education is experiential, very practical, open to questions from participants, and interactive with instructors.
