  • MS in Agronomy & Horticulture UNL Degree Program
    Kathy Schindler kschindler1@unl.edu 402-472-1730
    This community is designed for online students who are pursuing a Master's of Science (MS) Degree through the UNL Department of Agronomy & Horticulture.  Taking classes from a distance offers unique opportunities and challenges.  Many Distance Education students are mid-level professionals who work full time, run businesses or may have a family to support. This virtual community is a place to share and exchange information and hear from other online students about their experiences. The goal is to make the Distance Education experience better for our students. Click on the MS Agronomy & Horticulture link at left to see more information.

  • North American Invasive Plant Ecology and Management Short Course
    Steve Young syoung4@unl.edu
    Welcome to the North American Invasive Plant Ecology and Management Short Course (NAIPSC) Online Community! The NAIPSC Online Community houses information about the NAIPSC Field Course, instructors, resources, and future opportunities to increase your knowledge of invasive plants. The 2013-2014 NAIPSC Webinar Series The 2013-2014 NAIPSC Webinar Series is now done. NAIPSC members can view the archived version by logging onto the NAIPSC Online Community. For more information about the NAIPSC Webinar Series and the Online Community, contact Steve Young. 2014 NAIPSC Web Course The first annual NAIPSC WC took place January 22-23, 2014. We had great sessions, good discussion, and no one complained about the food, hotel, or flight delays! If you weren't able to join us, don't worry because we recorded each session and have made them available in an 'archived' version. If you want to watch the sessions, contact Steve Young for details. Invasive Plants: Impacts on Ecosystems Are you interested in more than just how to control invasive plants? Have you had questions about where invasive plants occur and how they are impacting the most pristine to the most degraded ecosystems? Maybe you just want to know what an invasive plant is. If so, then you need to sign up for the all new course entitled, "Invasive Plants: Impacts on Ecosystems". In this 15-week course offered through the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, you'll learn how invasive plants in arid climates are affecting hydrological cycles, the changes below-ground caused by invasive plants, the legacies of invasive plants, and much more. The format of this 3-credit course is similar to other college-level courses, except that the all of the instruction, materials, and activities are located online. You can participate from anywhere to hear the pre-recorded lectures, and be involved in the discussion board and complete the problem sets and other various assignments. To put all of your new found knowledge to use, an optional final project on several topics including land manager interviews, invasive plant spotlights, and creating an educational program will be available. For any professional, researcher, student, or instructor working or teaching in the fields of conservation or land management, this course is for you. No other course is going to teach you the 'why' and 'how' relating to the establishment of invasive plants in terrestrial ecosystems. Find out more by contacting Dr. Steve Young (steve.young@unl.edu) or downloading a brochure. The 2014 course has already begun, but a shorter 5-week version is being developed.
