An educational online tool that takes students directly to three farms where they can watch videos from cattle and sheep producers that align with the school curiculum was developed several years ago, however had not had great uptake.  Advice was that this was due to useability of the site. 
As such a consultant was engaged to undertake a useability test of the mini-website that Virtual Farm is hosted on and provdie advice on how we can improve it and increase viewers.  A final report was developed for internal use only.
