Numerous changes occurring within the profession of agricultural education are prompting agricultural educators to explore the advantages of delivering credit instruction via distance education technologies. In this regard, the Agricultural Satellite Corporation (AG*SAT), a consortium of primarily land grant universities, commissioned a study to assess the opportunities for institutions to deliver more agricultural and natural resources instruction via the AG*SAT network. The findings of this assessment indicate that these institutions want to deliver more instruction via satellite. This instruction focuses primarily upon emerging topics and areas in which the universities have limited capacity to fulfill. The findings provide numerous implications and opportunities for agricultural educators.
