Abstract
New Zealand has a relatively high living standard, a well-educated rural population and a relatively high usage of computers and the Internet. These factors mean that many farmers and horticulturists now use the Internet websites for information access and education purposes. Using examples of rural focused websites this paper illustrates some ways the Internet is used for informal and formal education in the rural community. Telecommunication access problems and possible future solutions are outlined. Potential of rural Internet website use for education and human resource development are briefly considered.
