Extension gets supercharged with eXtension website
Where can you go to get answers to questions about grub control, fizzy orange juice, and burying the stems of a stevia plant? Try the eXtension Internet-based collaborative where land-grant universities exchange objective, research-based knowledge to solve challenges in real time.
“Collaboration with peers via eXtension fosters creativity and results in educational experiences for the public that are rich with engagement,” said Sarah Baughman, eXtension evaluation and research leader and Virginia Tech assistant professor.
Virginia Tech houses professional staff members who are supported by funds from Virginia Cooperative Extension and eXtension. There are 478 Virginia Tech faculty and staff members working with the online initiative.
