Program Page

Departments and SENR can now create Program Pages. A Program Page is different than a Basic Page. A Program Page can include a banner image, its' own internal navigation, a welcome statement, News, a Contact Person highlighted in the Right Sidebar, Events, Publications, In The Press, Videos and subpages. You can even create a navigation link that will highlight the program's staff. Thus the Program Page becomes a unique website to highlight your Program and still be part of your Department and use the consistent branding for all CFAES related websites.

If you are the person who puts content on your department website or for a program within a department contact your department website administrator to get training on how to create your own Program Page.

NETC 2015 at Big Sky Resort in Montana
By: BGS, Thursday, August 20th, 2015

The National Extension Technology Community is the organization formed to promote and sustain the National Extension Technology Conference (NETC). NETC (National Extension Technology Conference) is an annual event, not a formal organization. It is usually held in May or June at a land-grant university whose employees volunteer to host it. In some ways, NETC is a virtual organization of people interested in the use and application of information technology in the Cooperative Extension System and/or at a Land Grant university. NETC is an opportunity for sharing and learning about innovative types and uses of information technology. Participation is not limited to faculty and staff of Extension. In fact, anyone with an interest in information technology and its use in higher and continuing education, as well as in organization management, is welcome to participate.

This year NETC2015 was hosted by Montana State University and held at the Big Sky Resort. I did a session on Twitter. My session was one of the Showcase sessions. The Showcase is 45 minutes long divided into 3 15 minute sessions. I gave my group a quiz, complete with prizes, about Twitter. This is my session. See if you can answer the questions. Answers.

I would like to thank Ryan Schmiesing and Kelly Zachrich for allowing me to attend NETC2015.
