In the past month, the project team has made good progress on several Phase 1 milestones in the OSU Extension web upgrade project.

Identify/confirm contacts
We compiled existing information on website contacts. Beginning Oct. 21, we will email current website contacts with a request to confirm or update the site manager and decision maker for each site. The relevant Regional Administrator or Program Leader will be copied.

Preliminary development
We have a Drupal 8 dev site (test site) set up for the new OSU Extension main web presence.

Identify essential features/functions/content
We identified and prioritized features for development during Phase 1. Decisions were made based on the project’s guiding criteria.

Content strategy
We invite you to learn alongside the project team. The new “Learn with us” page on the project blog includes resources we’ve found useful in exploring, understanding, and applying content strategy. Check these out, and let us know your thoughts!

What’s next

  • Begin development work on priority features, starting with people/locations directory.
  • Audit and prioritize content for main OSU Extension site, Phase 1.
  • Develop initial user-friendly tags/categories.

Please contact the project team. Your feedback will help us improve our communication plan and the project blog, especially the FAQs.
