In 2018, Extension faculty were organized into content teams to populate the new Extension website. If you led the review of content from the county and program sites to see what to migrate or facilitated a discussion with your working groups about what content your audiences wanted, report your contributions and outcomes in Digital Measures.
To capture your effort in your P&T CV, document it in Digital Measures under “Other Assigned Duties.” While content you have authored, reviewed, or contributed to can be listed under “Publications,” on a content team you may provide more leadership that strengthens the group process. Here’s some suggested language that could be used; enter the steps that are appropriate to your experience.
The Other Assigned Duties screen looks like this:
Extension Website Content Team Leader or Extension Website Content Team Contributor
Description of issue/situation:
Because older program and county websites were going offline, existing web content was reviewed and if warranted, migrated to the new Extension content management system.
Content teams had opportunities to provide feedback to the Extension website, which was launched in phases. This step-wise launch permitted faculty to become trained in the new content management system and workflow processes.
Description of action taken:
As a content team leader, I convened team members so that we could “divide and conquer” the size of the job. Content was reviewed for its suitability to today’s Extension audience and then entered on the new website. I coordinated workload with [student workers, research assistants, content team members, etc.] who assisted in content entry.
In addition, I facilitated communication with my teammates, the EESC web team, and with program area leaders to [request topic changes, curate content on the site, enter or review content on the website, tag content appropriately, identify missing content, suggest functionality or design changes, and coordinate or participate in trainings to learn the content management system]. This took approximately ____ hours.
Description of outcome or impact:
___ pieces of content were added and read by ___ visitors. These requested features were added to website: ____ (Also include any impact statements from people in the community or clients who have benefited from the website content).
Inclusivity of this activity (optional):
Our content team’s content reached an audience under the age of 35, who made up ___% of all visitors to our group’s content.
All our content included subheading formats, alternative text of images, and clear writing to increase the access to its content for diverse audiences. When feasible, PDFs were also made into text articles for improved accessibility.

There is the ability to link relevant publications, presentations and more to this kind of record. The EESC web team is also working on an analytics dashboard linked to content team group pages when logged into the the Extension website to quantify page and site traffic. Until then, you can contact the web team if you would like this information.
