From November – December 2016, a former cyber security graduate student Dan Redden was awarded approximately $4000.00 for Assignment: AEMIP063-AET, Agriculture Programs Software Training for the Institut Supérieur Agronomic et Vétérinaire de Faranah (ISAV/F) and Students in Faranah, Guinea.
Redden provided technical assistance at Guinea’s largest agricultural university by training professors to use an online open source database system. This system was to allow the university to go from a paper to a paperless environment. The system’s that Redden implemented provided two different options to the university to be able to store their documents. Redden also provided hardware and software needed for the assignment that was not available at the university to allow for an easier integration of the new applications.
