eXtension Forms Oil Spill Community of Practice

While there has been information on the eXtension site since early June, there is now an official landing page located under the Disaster Issues Resource Area http://www.extension.org/oil spill. Content includes feature articles, Frequently Asked Questions, news stories and the ability to categorize incoming Ask an Expert questions with the “oil spill” tag. The new Oil Spill Community of Practice has 13 members and 3 identified leaders and work is underway to develop new content and membership. The regional task forces identified by the Gulf state Extension and SeaGrant directors are developing this eXtension content. Other Communities of Practice, including Financial Security for All, are contributing content, as appropriate. Resources on eXtension for the public are complementary to educational packages for Extension educators hosted on the EDEN website.
