Monitoring and learning, advisors met on 21 June in Hungary

Participants of the IO4 Piloting phase joined for a common discussion about the experiences and following steps of using the e-learning system. The next stage of the pilot will also have to be commenced, by more systematic use of the advisory loogbook and issue tracking sofware both the one operated by Gazda Kontroll (GK), and the other, provided by the project (open source Mantis). GK's sofware was slightly extended so that difficulty of the task, quality of solution, weight (importance), independence; and other details of the service provision can be added to each service activity, while the Mantis was fully customized to enable the work with selected advisors and farmers. Analyzing this data will allow the project to further refine the profiles of the advisors, to better map knowledge gaps and conduct more targetted capacity development actions.
