Over the past 7 years, ISU Extension has incorporated the use Adobe Connect extensively to enhance timely crop risk management education. These tend to be recorded videos 10 to 20 minutes in length and posted to the ISU Ag Decision Maker web site under Voiced Media.
The Iowa Commodity Challenge features a series of ten recorded Adobe Connect webcasts to highlight commodity crop marketing education topics. These webcasts are used by farmers and other agribusiness professionals to update their crop marketing knowledge and skills. A 60-page Market Tools Workbook is available that is complimented by the webcast recordings.
In 2014, a series of YouTube videos were recorded in addition to Adobe Connect webcasts. The 8-part series titled "Finalizing ARC PLC Decisions" featured 8 to 10 minute videos. These were used to enhance the more than 200 meetings, workshops and conferences conducted by ISU Extension state and field specialists on the topic.
Expansion is underway to offer more live webinars, recorded webcasts and YouTube videos on a variety of crop, livestock and financial risk management topics.
