Several authors have written about approaches being implemented in colleges of agriculture to meet the computing needs of students. For example, Foster and Walker (1984) discussed how the University of Nebraska-Lincoln makes sophomores computer literate through a course about computer networks, programming, and commercial software. Other authors have written about microcomputers being integrated into existing courses. Russell (1985) explained that seniors in animal science at the University of Wyoming use microcomputers to make better management decisions. Weber, Young, and Pearson (1985) detailed how an advanced farm management course was revised to incorporate more computer instruction at Washington State University. Hsu and Hsu (1985) discussed how microcomputers are integrated into a landscape architecture course at Washington State University.
