Website Contacts Identified, Thanks! (OSU Extension Web Upgrade Update)
The project team continues to make good progress on several Phase 1 milestones in the OSU Extension web upgrade project.
Site managers and decision makers have been identified for each site. We appreciate your help!
Features & functions
In our last post, you learned we identified and prioritized features for development during Phase 1. We have started development on selected features, starting with the people/locations directory.
On the “Learn with us” page on the project blog, we’ve added additional resources we’ve found useful in exploring, understanding, and applying content strategy. We invite you to learn alongside the project team. Check these out, and let us know your thoughts!
- Continue to develop Phase 1 features.
- Continue to identify initial user-friendly tags/categories.
- Continue to audit and prioritize content for main OSU Extension site, Phase 1.
Visit the OSU Extension web upgrade project blog for more project details. Please contact the project team with any questions. Your feedback will help us improve our communication plan and the project blog, especially the FAQs.
